  • MOZAMBIQUE: A growing Islamist insurgency in northern Mozambique entered its fourth year this week, with experts saying there is no end in sight. Since the first attack in 2017 by al-Shabab (considered the Mozambique affiliate of Islamic State) in the province of Cabo Delgado, rich in gas resources, militants have taken control of territory in the northern province, including a strategic port. More than 2,000 people have been killed since the beginning of the conflict, with at least 600 attacks across the restive province.
