EU Counterinsurgency Aid to Mozambique Should Help Protect Rights
[HRW.ORG] The European Union
...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing...
has agreed to a request by the Mozambican government for help combatting the Islamist gang al-Sunna wa Jama’a.

The insurgency began in October 2017 and affects several districts in the northern province of Cabo Delgado. Fighting between the group and government forces has left more than 1,500 civilians dead, displaced more than 250,000, and resulted in more than 700,000 people needing emergency assistance. The bully boyz have committed beheadings, attacks on villages, summary executions, looting, and destruction of infrastructure, including schools and health centers.

In a letter sent last month by the Mozambican minister of foreign affairs and cooperation, Veronica Macamo, to the EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, the government asked for humanitarian and logistical support, and specialist training for the Mozambican defense and security forces. It was the first time that the government publicly acknowledged the need for international assistance in fighting the Death Eaters.
