PRESIDENT OF CAMEROON WEDS IN PRIVATE CEREMONY

President Paul Biya of Cameroon married 24-year-old Chantal Vigouroux in civil and church ceremonies Saturday, state radio said.

Like their traditional wedding Feb. 26, the nuptials were private and shrouded in official secrecy until the radio news bulletin.

Biya's first wife, Jeanne-Irene, died in 1992 of cancer.

The 61-year-old Biya's second wife is the daughter of a Frenchman and a Cameroonian woman who was brought up by "Papa" Azar, a Lebanese restaurant owner in Yaounde.
