Mozambique ‘jihadists behead’ villagers

At least 10 people have been beheaded in northern Mozambique by suspected Islamist militants, officials say.

Children are reported to be among those targeted in the attack on Monjane village in Cabo Delgado province, a hub for mining and petroleum exploration.

An Islamist militant group has carried out sporadic attacks in the region in the last year.

It is believed to be making millions of dollars from selling timber and rubies.

Known locally as al-Shabab, the group was formed in 2015 as a religious organisation and has no known links to the Somali jihadist group of the same name

One of the victims of the weekend attack was the leader of Monjane village, a local resident told the AFP news agency.

“They targeted the chief as he had been providing information to the police about the location of al-Shabab in forests,” he is quoted as saying.
