    Default Seven killed in Mozambique jihadist attack claimed by IS

    It is a mystery to not only those closer. A very slim story that open with:
    Seven people including a policeman were killed in northern Mozambique this week in a jihadist attack claimed by the Islamic State group, local sources said Saturday.

    From a previously unknown source, Global Voices NGO, and I have viewed the short video. It also provides an update on the situation which is so rarely reported, in part as few can visit the affected region.

    Default 3rd time lucky to end forty-two years of war!

    Most readers I expect will recall Mozambique has been blighted by a civil war for a very long time; no, not the current insurgency in the northern provinces.

    Here is a shock, with my emphasis in bold:
    A newly agreed deal could end 42 years of armed contest between the Mozambique Liberation Front-led government (FRELIMO) and the armed opposition party Mozambican National Resistance (RENAMO). The agreement, due to be signed in August, is the third attempt and if it is to last, it will require political good will, compromise and an acceptance of more inclusive national politics by both parties.
    To be fair there has been ceasefire between the government and RENAMO since 1992, but violence flares up, especially when elections are due and RENAMO has an estimated 5k fighters out in the bush.

    I recall that RENAMO long ago had support from Rhodesia, after 1979-1980 support from South Africa for a long time and then IIRC no-one officially gave them support.

    Two summary reports and the later has a fuller report (not read yet):https://af.reuters.com/article/topNe...CN1UW0WY-OZATP and https://www.chathamhouse.org/publica...ird-time-lucky
