Cameroon: LGTB activist tortured and murdered

Eric Ohena Lembembe (pictured), journalist and LGTB activist, was murdered this weekend in Yaounde. His bloodied body was found in his home, apparently tortured to death: he showed signs of broken legs and neck, as well as burnings in face, hands and feet.

Eric was currently most active as director of the AIDS Foundation Cameroun (CAMFAIDS).

Neela Ghoshal (HRW) considered the government responsible for its inability to fight homophobia and hate crimes.
