An indefinite strike by lawyers in Cameroon is continuing.
The lawyers declared the strike on Monday to protest what they call government interference in their profession.
The stop work action, which follows a five-day strike last week that got no government response, means courtrooms across the country will remain closed until a deal is struck.
The Cameroon Bar Council held an initial five-day strike last week to protest an incident on November 27 in the city of Douala.
The Bar Council says security forces tried to intervene in a case there, accusing lawyers of corruption. When the lawyers insisted that police leave the courtroom, the police attacked them with tear gas.
