|Frankline: One of the protesters killed|
Friday's violence occurred in Ndop, about 40 kilometers to the east. The protest started after the mass arrest of youths who burned down a Francophone school property in the area.
"On Friday morning around 11 a.m., the protesters became more aggressive, the police fired in self-defense and there were two deaths in the clashes. Ten wounded," said a local police commissioner who asked not to be named.
A staff member in the office of the regional governor confirmed the number of dead and wounded.
The violence comes as a rare test for long-standing President Paul Biya, 83, who has ruled Cameroon since 1982.
