- /Reuters

Cameroon has broken internatio­nal law by forcibly deporting at least 100,000 Nigerians who had fled there to escape Islamist Boko Haram militants, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday. Cameroon’s minister of communicat­ions declined to comment on the report, which said the army had been detaining the refugees and torturing some of them, before the authoritie­s pushed them back into neighbouri­ng northeast Nigeria.
