Six killed by extremists in Mozambique village attack   

MAPUTO Mozambique (Xinhua) -- A new attack by the armed extremists killed six people Wednesday night in the Quissanga district of Mozambique’s northern province Cabo Delgado, residents from the district told reporters on Thursday.

Local reports said the extremists assaulted the Namaluco village, burning some villagers and killing others with machetes.

The residents, some fleeing the attacks, said the extremists uttered a few words mixed with Arabic and other languages, and those who did not respond in the same language were attacked.

“They were burning houses, entering sanitary units and vandalizing,” said one woman, describing their action as very quick.

Most residents have taken refuge in the woods or moved to other places.

Since the new wave of violence began at the end of May, more than 20 people have been killed by the group that claims the imposition of Sharia (Islamic law) in the same province.

According to a research released last month, the group has links with Islamist militants in Tanzania, Somalia, Kenya and the Great Lakes region of East Africa.
