The Cameroon government has dropped charges of fake news levelled against a prominent TV journalist from an Anglophone region.
Mimi Mefo Takambo was arrested after sharing reports on social media alleging that the military was behind the death of an American missionary.
The military says the case was shelved on the orders of President Paul Biya.
Over the last two years, Anglophone areas have been hit by unrest in the majority French-speaking country.
Some English-speaking groups complain of discrimination and are pushing for a separate state.
Ms Mefo, head of English news at the privately owned Equinoxe Television and Radio, was arrested on 7 November on charges of “publishing and propagating information that infringes on the territorial integrity of the Republic of Cameroon”.
