Internet has been cut for over a month in Cameroon's English-speaking regions, believed to be a record in Africa, following anti-government protests by the country's linguistic minority, a watchdog said.Since November there have been protests in the two main English-speaking regions, northwest and southwest Cameroon, to press for a federal state while some secessionists have even called for independence.On January 19, Cameroon's internet providers informed clients in the anglophone regions that services had been cut, after the government kicked off a campaign against "fake news" on social media.Internet Without Borders' Owono said the blackout was costing Cameroon dearly.
