CPJ reports that nine journalists have been imprisoned in Cameroon with a life lost in the process. The country has witnessed an upsurge in arrests of journalists in the last five years after being significantly low key between 2011 and 2013. 

Several journalists are behind bars, according to CPJ research. These include Paul Chouta, Mancho Bibixy, Tsi Conrad , Thomas Awah Junior, Amadou Vamoulke, Wawa Jackson Nfor, and Samuel Wazizi, who has not been heard of since he was detained by the military on August 2.
