34 Cameroonian Soldiers Missing after Military Ship Capsizes

YAOUNDE – A total of 34 soldiers from the Cameroonian army rapid intervention battalion were missing after their ship capsized off the coast of the Bakassi peninsula, Cameroon’s Defense Ministry said on Monday.

The shipwreck took place on Sunday in the Cameroon-governed peninsula near the border with Nigeria, due to bad weather, according to the country’s government.

The ship was carrying 37 soldiers and three of them were rescued alive by an emergency brigade that managed to locate the shipwreck after tracking traces of fuel left by the ship.

It was likely that the ship capsized due to overloading, according to army officials.
