3 arrests in Cameroon as LGBT harassment continues

For further information, see the follow-up story: “Cameroon: LGBT activists in custody; harassment continues.”

Police in Cameroon today arrested three people who were present at the police station in Yaoundé to help with the so-far-unsuccessful investigation of the murder of activist journalist Eric Lembembe.

(The rest of this article has been removed from public view, at least temporarily, to double-check on its accuracy and to review whether publication of some of the facts could pose a danger to those involved, given the level of violence in Cameroon.)
