Mozambique: Terrorist group Daesh claims responsibility for attacks in Mozambique and Afghanistan
The terrorist group Daesh has claimed responsibility for an attack in northern Mozambique close to the site of gas projects worth $60 billion.
On Monday, militants attacked the town of Mocimboa da Praia having occupied some locations, including an army barracks, before being expelled by security forces yesterday.
Using its news agency, Amaq, Daesh took credit for the attack in which up to a dozen soldiers and police are said to have been killed or injured.
“Military sources told Amaq that Islamic State fighters attacked five army and police barracks in the town,” the agency said, adding that weapons, ammunition and other equipment had also been seized.
