A soccer field was transformed into an execution site where the bodies were decapitated and dismembered in the gas-rich province of Cabo Delgado.
More than 50 persons were beheaded in Northern Mozambique by a group of Islamic radicals, according to the BBC. The radical militants transformed a soccer field into an execution site, where the bodies of the victims were decapitated and dismembered, reported Portuguese daily Correio da Manhã.
Clashes have been occurring in the province of Cabo Delgado since 2017. More than 2 000 people have died and 430 000 were left homeless as a result of the numerous conflicts in that Muslim-majority province. Cabo Delgado is home to a multibillion-dollar liquefied natural gas project by French multinational Total.
The radicals are said to be linked to ISIS and exploit poverty and unemployment in order to recruit new militants to establish rule in that African region, but some analysts have questioned that, according to Al Jazeera.
Armed men shot at and set fire to homes in the village of Nanjaba last Friday. Two persons were beheaded and several women abducted. Bernardino Rafael, commander-general of Mozambique’s police confirmed the attacks in a media briefing on Monday.
The government of Mozambique has asked for “international help” to deal with the problem to counter the violent attacks that have recently been carried out.
