Cameroon's presidential election will take place against a backdrop of violence in the country's English-speaking regions. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced. Some of them have found refuge in neighboring Nigeria.
Vote counting is underway after Cameroon's Sunday presidential vote. The polls were marked by deadly violence in the English-speaking regions. But the African Union gives it a clean bill.
Any hopes that oppression of the opposition in Cameroon would be eased after the swearing-in of President Paul Biya on Tuesday were dashed with the arrest of opposition leader Maurice Kamto.
Paul Biya is set to be sworn in for a seventh term as president of Cameroon on Tuesday amid unrest, arrests and calls by the opposition for a vote recount.
As Cameroon's presidential candidates gear up for the October 7 election, it is uncertain if voting will take place at all in the restive English-speaking region of the French-majority central African country
