Late on Sunday, a journalist was shot and killed in Cameroon's volatile northwest. 

The deceased was the weekly daily "The Advocate"'s bureau head for the west and northwest area, according to a statement issued by the local journalists union.

Anye Nde Nsoh was shot as he was inside a bar in the Ntarikon neighborhood of Bamenda.

The United Nations expressed worry about the state of the media in Cameroon earlier this year after a radio host and a journalist were slain in two separate incidents in or close to the nation's capital Yaoundé.

The journalists' demise coincides with a confrontation that turned violent in 2017 between Cameroonian authorities and some separatist groups in English-speaking regions.

Both sides of the conflict between armed separatists and government forces have resulted in thousands of fatalities and crimes.
