Mujahideen for the Islamic State in the northern part of the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique have taken the commands of the prophet to heart, beheading dozens of infidels.
Islamic radicals behead more than 50 people in Mozambique
A soccer field was transformed into an execution site where the bodies were decapitated and dismembered
More than 50 persons were beheaded in Northern Mozambique by a group of Islamic radicals, according to BBC. The radical militants transformed a soccer field into an execution site, where the bodies of the victims were decapitated and dismembered.
Clashes have been occurring in the gas-rich province of Cabo Delgado since 2017. More than 2,000 people have died and 430,000 left homeless as a result of the numerous conflicts in that Muslim-majority province.
The radicals are linked to Daesh (ISIS) and exploit poverty and unemployment in order to recruit new militants to establish rule in that African region.
Armed men shot at and set fire to homes in the village of Nanjaba last Friday. Two persons were beheaded and several women abducted.
The government of Mozambique has previously asked for international help to deal with the problem and counter the violent attacks that have recently been carried out.
