Cameroon flies freed Boko Haram hostages to capital

Twenty-seven people including 10 Chinese workers held for months by suspected Boko Haram militants have arrived in Cameroon’s capital.

The hostages were flown to Yaounde from the country’s far northern region after being freed early on Saturday.

They include the wife of Cameroon’s Vice-Prime Minister, Amadou Ali.
