Displacement in Northern Mozambique May Reach One Million - UN

Senior leaders with the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, have warned of the urgent need to address the growing humanitarian crisis in the Cabo Delgado province in northern Mozambique, where an ongoing insurgency has uprooted hundreds of thousands of people. The insurgency began in 2017 and more than 2,000 people have been killed, but it is not clear who the insurgents are, how they are supported, or what they want, according to Assistant High Commissioners Gillian Triggs and Raouf Mazou who heard shocking stories from survivors of a crisis that is unfolding in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and the aftermath of several devastating cyclones.
