The bodies of 12 foreigners were found in northeastern Mozambique. The burial was found in the courtyard of the Amarula hotel.
“I don’t know what nationality they are, but they are all white. Their hands were tied. And they were all decapitated,” a police spokesman said. According to preliminary data, the victims were employees of the French company Total, which is building a natural gas processing plant near Palma.
Mozambican President Filipe Nusi announced that the country’s armed forces had driven the terrorists out of the city of Palma, which they captured at the end of March. Foreigners most likely tried to hide in a hotel when the city was captured by militants, writes TASS. In the north of Mozambique, ISIS (a group banned in Russia) is trying to create its own Islamist state.
