Suspected militants decapitate a pastor in Mozambique

According to local reports, suspected Islamist militants decapitated a church pastor in the Macomia district of the gas-rich northern Mozambican province of Cabo Delgado.

According to military sources, a woman from Nova Zambézia village went to the district police command last Wednesday with a bag containing her husband’s human head.

According to the police, suspected Islamic State-linked insurgents apprehended the pastor in a field, decapitated him, and then handed over his head to his wife, instructing her to notify authorities.

This is the latest attack suspected to have been carried out by jihadists who have been targeting Cabo Delgado districts since October 2017.

Following missions against them by Mozambican, Rwandan, and Southern African Development Community (Sadc) forces, the insurgents have recently migrated to Niassa province.
