The kick-off of the 2021 African Cup of Nations was given this Sunday by the Cameroonian president Paul Biya. And if the party was successful for the locals, thanks to the victory of the Indomitable Lions in front of their public, a first hitch has just occurred.
According to our information, three Algerian journalists were violently attacked a few meters from their hotel in Douala on Sunday night. The three journalists were victims of a knife attack. The circumstances surrounding the attack remain unclear for the moment, but they were robbed of their personal belongings including a money bag, a passport and a telephone. All three men were evacuated to a hospital for treatment. While the condition of one is not at risk, a second journalist who was attacked was more seriously injured.
