YAOUNDE (Reuters) - An improvised bomb wounded three policemen in the main city of Cameroon's minority English-speaking region on Thursday, the regional governor said, in an attack a senior security source blamed on separatist militants.

Speaking on state TV, Adolphe Lele Lafrique, Governor of the North West Region, referred to a "terrorist attack."

A senior security source told Reuters by telephone the attack was the work of "extremists" who want independence for the Anglophone part of mostly French-speaking Cameroon.
