Two Islamists beheaded in Mozambique

A militia in Mozambique has captured and beheaded two Islamist militants, according to Carta de Mozambique newspaper.

The people of Cabo Delgado, in northern Mozambique, have reportedly decided to take legal action in retaliation for sporadic raids. And killings by the Islamist group Ahlu Sunna Wa-Jama, known locally as Al-Shabab.

The group, which has no known links with the Somali jihadist group of the same name, beheaded 10 villagers last May.

Recent revenge raids seem to have been triggered by an attack on the village of Lilongo early Wednesday morning.

The government encouraged communities to hand over suspects of wrongdoing to the relevant authorities.
