Renewed attacks in Cabo Delgado
Recent attacks in northern Mozambique suggest that the capture and prosecution of alleged militants in the region last year has failed to solve the problem. Workers related to the emerging liquefied natural gas [LNG] industry have been attacked for the first time and foreign investors are concerned about the violence, while human rights NGOs are worried about the tactics they have employed.
Mozambique’s window on the world
While new coal and LNG port terminals in the northern half of Mozambique attract most international attention, the port of Maputo continues to grow rapidly. The more northerly projects are designed to handle domestic exports but, in contrast, Maputo has managed to regain its historic role as an important entrepôt for South African trade.
