Students kidnapped from a boarding school in Cameroon's northwest region have been freed, officials say.

The 79 students and three others were seized early on Sunday in the region's capital, Bamenda.

Meanwhile, the school's principal, the driver, and a teacher are still in captivity.

The kidnapped students hailed from Bamenda's Presbyterian Secondary School.

The circumstances of the students' release is unclear but authorities said they are being questioned before being released to their parents.
