ISLAMISTS BEHEADS 50 PEOPLE IN A FOOTBALL PITCH

Islamists have beheaded more than 50 people in Mozambique – turning a football pitch into an execution ground.
A militant group linked to Islamic State (ISIS, formerly IS) set fire to several villages and gathered together people they had captured on a football pitch, where the victims were then decapitated and their bodies chopped to pieces. Meanwhile, women from the villages were abducted as the attackers chanted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (‘God is Great’), local media has reported.
This is the latest in a series of attacks in northern Mozambique, as jihadists violently seize territory, terrorizing citizens and forcing them from their homes in the process. The province is rich in oil and ruby reserves, but many locals complain they have seen little benefit from the area’s riches.
That’s helped the jihadists, who use poverty and unemployment to recruit youth in their fight to establish a caliphate in the area. In April, jihadists shot dead and beheaded more than 50 young men for allegedly refusing to join their ranks.
Since 2017, more than 400,000 people have been displaced by the conflict, with more than 2,000 people killed.
