Bible translator Benjamin Tem was murdered in his home in the Wum area of Anglophone Cameroon on Sunday 20 October when suspected extremists broke in.   

Tem’s murder comes only two months after the death of Angus Abraham Fung, another Bible translator, who was killed when assailants broke into his home in the early hours of Sunday 25 August. Fung’s wife was viciously attacked and had her arm chopped off.  It is not clear at the time of writing who carried out the two attacks.

The murdered translators, Benjamin Tem and Angus Abraham Fung, were key members of the CABTAL Bible translation project

Both Tem and Fung worked for the Cameroon Association for Bible Translations and Literacy (CABTAL). They were key members of the Bible translation project which has published over 3,000 copies of the New Testament in the regional Aghem language. Prior to this translation project, the Aghem language only existed in oral form.
