Cameroon's National Day signals deepening divide

While some Anglophones are asking for equal representation in government and society, others are calling for their own country.

    It is National Day in Cameroon, but the country is divided.

    A curfew has been imposed in its English-speaking regions where separatists say they will not take part in celebrations.

    On the French side, hundreds of troops have been taking part in parades.
