The authorities in Cameroon say kidnappers have released an entire football team that was kidnapped on Wednesday.

They say some of the footballers were tortured. A ransom is reported to have been paid for their release.

The government blames Anglophone separatists for the abduction of the team which played for the University of Buea.

The footballers were seized by gunmen when they were practicing on the university campus.

Kidnappings have become common in English-speaking Cameroon where the university is based.

Anglophone separatists have been fighting for an independent state of Ambazonia for the past few years.
