Journalist jailed in Cameroon over 'state security'

YAOUNDE: A prominent journalist and television presenter from Cameroon's restive anglophone region, where a violent separatist campaign has sparked a massive government crackdown, has been jailed for"attacking state security", her lawyer told AFP on Thursday.
Mimi Mefo, who heads English news for privately-owned Equinoxe broadcasting, was charged by a military tribunal late Wednesday and placed in preventive detention in the New-Bell prison in Cameroon's commercial capital Douala, lawyer Alice Nkom said. She will be tried by a military court on Monday, Nkom said. (AFP)
