At­tack on op­po­si­tion leader

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - WORLD -

GUN­MEN have ab­ducted the leader of Cameroon’s main op­po­si­tion party, John Fru Ndi, from his house.

Nkedze Emilia, a sen­a­tor of the So­cial Demo­cratic Front party, said the men were heav­ily armed with weapons.

“When they got to his house, his guards re­sisted and one of them was shot on the leg,” he said. “But our leader was forced into a car and taken to an un­known des­ti­na­tion.” The sen­a­tor said the wounded guard was be­ing treated in hospital. “We are afraid,” he said.

It is the sec­ond kid­nap­ping of Fru Ndi this year. In April he was ab­ducted by mem­bers of Cameroon’s sep­a­ratist mov­ment but was later re­leased.
