89 people have been sentenced to death in Cameroon, after they were convicted for alleged links to Boko Haram.
The 89 are part of over 800 people arrested by Cameroon for alleged ties to the Islamist terrorist group, which has been spreading terror in Nigeria, but sometimes into neighbouring countries, including Cameroon.
The suspects were tried by a military court, the BBC reports. Their sentences fall under a new anti-terror law that the country passed in 2014.
Boko Haram continue to remain a threat in Nigeria and its neighbouring countries, ravaging through whole towns and laying them to waste. Last year, they announced themselves as the West African branch if ISIS, and have increased their brutality to match since.
