TEN people, including children are reported to have been beheaded in northern Mozambique. It is suspected that Islamists may be responsible for the carnage in Mojane, near Palma.

Apart from the horror of the attack, this places a question mark on the suitability of the area which is pipped to become the country’s new natural gas market.

Thus far, it is not yet certain who is responsbile, but locals have told Agence France Presse that it was Islamic insurgents.
