A year after the Mozambican government signed a peace agreement with the opposition Renamo, the southern African country is yet to achieve its main goal of putting an end to armed violence and ensuring lasting peace and prosperity. Now the rivalry between the former foes is no longer the primary conflict threatening the country - armed attacks by militant groups in the oil-rich Cabo Delgado province are increasing, sending a wave of panic through neighbouring countries.


Violence in Cabo Delgado has forced hundreds to flee their homes.
