A landslide during a funeral ceremony in Cameroon’s capital, Yaounde, has killed at least 14 people.

The regional governor, Paul Bea said the disaster happened on Sunday as people gathered on a football pitch at the base of a 20-metre-high soil embankment.

Bea revealed that at the scene 10 bodies were counted, but before the arrival of rescuers four bodies had been taken away.

The governor described the area where the landslide took place as a very dangerous spot and encouraged people to stay away from the Damas district in Yaounde’s eastern outskirts.
