Grief as suspected Islamists’ BEHEAD ten including kids in Mozambique

Mozambique is the latest country to come under attack by suspected Islamists who left a trail of death in the quiet village of Monjane

According to Daily Mail ten people including children were beheaded by suspected Muslim extremists in a Mozambique village.One of the victims was the chief of Monjane, a village near Palma in the country’s north, in revenge for him telling police the location of their forest hideout.

The Islamists were believed to be from al-Shabaab, an armed group believed responsible for several attacks in the area since October.

‘They targeted the chief as he had been providing information to the police about the location of al-Shabaab in forests,’ a witness said.

The jihadists in October attacked a police station and military post in the town of Mocimboa da Praia, about an hour south of Palma.

Two officers and 14 attackers were killed in what was believed to be the first jihadist attack in Mozambique.

In the following weeks, at least 300 Muslims were arrested and several mosques forced to close.

The group has no known link to the Somali jihadist group of the same name.

Mozambique court confirms ruling party won election

Mozambique’s electoral body on Tuesday confirmed the ruling Frelimo party’s candidate Filipe Nyusi had won October’s presidential election, as the opposition still refused to accept defeat.

Former defence minister Nyusi took 57 percent of the vote in the southern African nation, said the Constitutional Council — sharply down from the party’s 75 percent victory in the previous presidential election in 2009.

Nyusi’s nearest rival, Afonso Dhlakama of the former rebel party Renamo, won 37 percent — more than double the 16 percent he won in 2009.

Frelimo also took the majority of seats in the 250-member parliament, winning 144 to Renamo’s 89. The Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM), a newcomer to the political scene, won 17 seats.

Constitutional Council president Hermenegildo Gamito called for a fundamental review of the electoral system, pointing at legal complexities and irregularities from the polls.

The validation was the final stage of the election process, clearing the way for Nyusi’s inauguration in the first quarter of 2015.
