At least two people were killed in clashes between police and protesters from Cameroon's English-speaking minority in the country's northwest on Thursday, state television reported.

A group of youths were trying to block a meeting for the ruling People's Democratic Movement (CPDM) of President Paul Biya in the city of Bamenda before police shot at them, opposition Social Democratic Front (SDF) spokesman Denis Nkemlemo said.

"At least two people are reported dead and several other injured," CRTV said in its English language evening news. The opposition put the death toll at four.
