US military investigating Cameroon base torture allegations
August 5, 2017
BY JULIA MANCHESTER *
The head of U.S. Africa Command Gen. Thomas Waldhauser initiated the inquiry, an official confirmed to CNN on Friday.
The report said torture had occurred at military sites, including four military bases.
U.S. and French military personnel have been present at the Rapid Intervention Batallion (BIR) headquarters in Salak, which was one of the sites where a majority of the victims were tortured, Amnesty International claimed.
The U.S. has provided military support in Cameroon’s fight to combat the ISIS-linked terror organization Boko Haram.
Amnesty claims hundred of people are accused without evidence of working with the terror group in Cameroon.
