Cabo Del­gado, Mozam­bique

Is­lamist at­tacks:

The Week - - News | The world at a glance -

Mil­i­tants hacked at least seven peo­ple to death and burnt down more than 150 houses in a vil­lage in north­ern Mozam­bique on Tues­day. The at­tack was the lat­est in a spate of atroc­i­ties in the Cabo Del­gado province, and was at­trib­uted to a group whose mem­bers are be­lieved to have be­headed ten peo­ple (in­clud­ing two teenage boys) in an at­tack on two vil­lages at the end of May. The re­cent discovery of vast gas de­posits off the coast of north­ern Mozam­bique is ex­pected to trans­form the im­pov­er­ished coun­try’s econ­omy, but there is anx­i­ety in Cabo Del­gado that the province will not re­ceive any of the ben­e­fits – cre­at­ing fer­tile re­cruit­ing con­di­tions for ex­trem­ists.
