'Many Dead' in Militant Attack on Mozambique's Mocimboa da Praia

Insurgents occupied Mocimboa da Praia for the fourth time, in an attack which reportedly "cost many lives on both sides". Mocimboa da Praia lies about 100km south of Afungi which is where installations are being built to process the country's huge offshore gas reserves. The latest attack is bound to have further unnerved the foreign energy companies developing the gas fields.
