Dozens of people are feared to have been kidnapped from a school in the west of Cameroon.
At least 79 people have been abducted in Bamenda, the capital of the North-West region, anonymous government and military sources have been quoted by news agencies as saying.
They were abducted by armed gunmen early on Monday, sources told the BBC.
Cameroon's North-West and South-West regions have been hit by a separatist rebellion in recent years.
Militias, who have been demanding the secession of the two English-speaking regions, have called for a school boycott.
But no group has said it carried out the kidnapping.
