Islamist insurgents seize northern Mozambique town of Palma

DW, 28 Mar 2021
A suspected Islamist insurgent group known locally as Al Shabaab has seized the northern Mozambique town of Palma after days of fighting forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee. Local media say several people were killed during the conflict, though exact numbers haven't been verified as communication networks are down in the area. A nearby natural-gas project from French oil and gas company Total has been forced to suspend operations. The project has been stalled by repeated attacks in the region, which has been plagued by violence since 2017.
