DOUALA, Cameroon (Reuters) – A Cameroon Airlines passenger plane came under fire on Sunday morning while approaching Bamenda airport in northwestern Cameroon, in a region where separatist insurgents are fighting the army, the airline said in a statement.

The plane landed safely and there were no casualties, the statement said, and the airline was assessing the damage.
