Dozens of Cameroonian asylum seekers deported from the United States are abused on their return home, an international pressure group says.
Some were arrested, tortured and raped, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said.
“Their national identity cards were confiscated and their relatives abused,” it said.
The US was failing Cameroonians with credible asylum claims by sending them back to harm in the country they fled, HRW said.
Most of the deportees said they left Cameroon because of the separatist conflict in English-speaking regions.
