LGBTs in Cameroon: Attacked, arrested, freed again

Police in Cameroon have released two gay men whom they had held in custody for three days starting shortly after the men were attacked by a gay-bashing crowd on March 24.

Cameroonian journalist Eric Lembembe interviewed the two men, Jonas Singa Kumie and Franky Djome, after their release.

He has written an updated article on the case. The French version is here: “Jonas et Franky: ‘Nous vivons dans une insécurité totale.”

A translated version will soon be published here in English.
