Military claims to have regained full control of Palma- Mozambique Gov

While Mozambique’s military claims to have regained full control of the coastal town of Palma, there are growing concerns over the country’s capability to deal with the humanitarian crisis in the wake of the deadly massacre. Dozens of people have been killed and thousands have fled the town after it was invaded by extremist militants linked to the Islamic State almost two months ago. One South African was among those killed while trying to flee the town in a convoy last month. African leaders are now under pressure to intervene in the crisis as they prepare to hold discussions in the upcoming SADC meeting.
