Mozambique: Setback in Palma District and Conflict Spreading from Cabo Delgado to Southwest

"Clean up" operations continue in Cabo Delgado by Rwandan and SAMIM contingents, with information from recent days on the capture, by SADC forces, of five insurgents in Nangade district and another in Macomia district. Ambushes continued by small armed cells against patrols by the Armed Forces for the Defense of Mozambique (FADM) and SAMIM in various parts of the province.
