Concerns mount over militant attack in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado


Local media reports from Mozambique suggest that the army incurred substantial casualties during a militant attack in the northern province of Cabo Delgado on Friday and has been attempting to downplay the true extent of the losses.

State media outlets have acknowledged the death of one member of a local militia during the assault on the town of Macomia, which was eventually repelled.

However, residents claim that the town remained under occupation for a day, despite efforts by Rwandan peacekeepers to intervene. Additionally, a nearby town was targeted in a separate attack on Sunday.

Islamist militants have been engaged in a campaign for the past six years in northern Mozambique.
