In a shocking incident in Mozambique, more than 50 people were beheaded and then their bodies cut to pieces on a football field. After that, the women of the village were kidnapped. Not only that, another group burned down people’s homes. According to the DailyMail report, the incident was carried out by fundamentalists associated with the Islamic State.
According to BBC News reports, the gunmen shouted “Allah Hu Akbar” slogans as they attacked the village. A Mozambican police chief told The Times that the attackers set houses ablaze and then killed the escapees.
Corpses found in the forest
The previous week, many villages had been attacked and looted. In one incident, dozens of men and boys were beheaded by suspected jihadists. The Mueda district official said police obtained information about the incident after the bodies were found in the jungle. He said about 20 corpses must have been found within a radius of 500 meters.
Strikes also in March-April
In March of this year, ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack near the Exxon Mobil and Total gas project. There are about $ 60 billion worth of energy development projects in the province, but fundamentalist activities have intensified in recent times. At the same time, in April, the jihadists beheaded more than 50 young people.
