Mozambique – Militants Attack Police Stations in Cabo Delgado
On 5 September 2017, about 30 militants attacked three police stations in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado Province killing at least two police officers. According to officials, 14 of the assailants were killed in the resultant firefight and several others were captured. The incident occurred in the coastal town of Mocimboa da Praia when militants attacked police stations including the district police command and a Natural Resources and Environment police station. The gun battle lasted most of the day and roads were only reopened at 18h00 that evening. It is believed many of the militants managed to escape after seizing firearms from the police stations. Some militants also attempted to rob a local bank branch, during which two security guards were injured. In response, security in Mocimboa da Praia remains high and a nighttime curfew is in effect.
