More Than 50 Beheaded by Militant Islamists in Mozambique

More than 50 people have been beheaded in northern Mozambique by militant Islamists, state media reports.

The militants turned a football field in a village into an “execution ground” where they decapitated and chopped bodies, other reports said. Several people were also beheaded in another village.

The beheadings are the latest in a series of gruesome attacks that the militants have carried out in gas-rich Cabo Delgado province since 2017. Up to 2,000 people have been killed and about 430,000 have been left homeless in the conflict in the mainly-Muslim province.

The militants are linked to the Islamic State (IS) group, giving it a foothold in southern Africa. The group has exploited poverty and unemployment to recruit youth in their fight to establish Islamic rule in the area.

Many locals complain that they have benefited little from the province’s ruby and gas industries.

The BBC’s Jose Tembe reported from the capital, Maputo, that the latest attack was probably the worst carried out by the militants. Many people are shocked, and they are calling for a peaceful resolution to the conflict, he added.

The gunmen chanted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”), fired shots, and set homes alight when they raided Nanjaba village on Friday night, the state-owned Mozambique News Agency quoted survivors saying.

Two people were beheaded in the village and several women abducted, the news agency added.

A separate group of militants carried out another brutal attack on Muatide village, where they beheaded more than 50 people, the news agency reported.

Villagers who tried to flee were captured and taken to the local football field where they were beheaded and chopped to pieces in an atrocity carried out from Friday night to Sunday, according to privately-run Pinnancle News.

Mozambique’s government has appealed for international help to fight the terrorism, saying its troops need specialized training.

Human rights groups say Mozambican security forces have also carried human rights abuses, including arbitrary arrests, torture, and killings during operations to curb the insurgency.

  1. The “religion of peace” is showing its true colours AGAIN.

    • Yes, many body pieces as usual! But Hillary did say at one occasion” Muslims are peaceful people and have nothing what so ever with terrorism ” didn’t she! I have a distinct memory she did!

    • It’s starting ALREADY because we have a new so-called president-elect and soon it will happen here again on US soil…That’s HOW they “respect” so-called democRAT US presidents…!!!

  2. So many countries profit from this poor nations and take advantage of their resources and yet they do not make an effort Rostand by them to offer protection it is like they are contributing to their slaughter greedy countries defend them as well

  3. Fuck Islam..Fuck Allah..Fuck the Muzzies..

  4. These are the people Biden is in bed with!

  5. Would this have happened if those unfortunates were armed? Apparently this village is ground zero for slaughter from a bunch of sword wielding Muslim zealots. In the last 500 years what evidence have we seen to indicate Muslims are a peaceful group of fun loving chaps that simply wish to practice neck surgery? Yet we keep giving them cover, making allowances for their religious rage. Appointing judges who block efforts to stop entry into the US of men from known terrorist nations.
    What do you predict will be done to stop terror attacks if Biden is seated in the Oval?

    • Biden plans on doing away with the ban that President Trump put in place where terrorist countries were not aloud to cross our borders. Biden is going to lift that ban & let them in!

    • Don’t forget that misguided states are electing them to serve in our government!

  6. I think the 50 people beheaded voted in Pennsylvania!

  7. As Marco Polo in the 12th Century admonished, “the Radical Muslim will cut one’s throat while the conservative Muslim holds his feet.” Apparently the West has learned nothing in 800 some years. Who in these “modern” Western countries DIDN’T know that this culture DOES NOT ASSIMILATE, and expects to change the norms and values of their “new” homeland.

  8. This is freakingly scary with those who have so much to say in government with AOC and and squad LOOK OUT USA cause if you disagree if and when Biden is in you will see heads roll here too

  9. The United States WAS a great country! Trump was trying to bring it back to its greatness, but our shithead politicians and the big companies have sold us out for the all mighty dollar. With Biden and AOC, we are FINISHED as a once great country. Once you give something to somebody (muslims, blacks, socialist) you cannot take it back. We are ow on a slippery slope flying towards socialism. Too bad, my wonderful country. It will get worse after Kamela Harris uses article 25 and has Biden declared unfit to govern. She will become president…………………..

  10. People should really know things about the Quran and Islam before thinking they know about how peaceful they seem.
    They can only make a contact with a non muslin for 10 years. During that 10 years they do not have to fully abide by the contract. It seems to be by their discretion. Plus if they lie to a non muslin they honor Islam. So where does that leave you? Pretty much with a contract written in sand. You need to find out about what is in the Quran to know where you stand. This is why Thomas Jefferson refused to help them in The 1700s, and we haven’t learned yet because no one wants to do the work.

  11. Don’t you realize whole areas in the U.S cities have already been taken over by the Muslins-like Dearborn, Michigan. They have closed off areas where their people live, work, go to their schools, and abide by the Muslin laws. Women and children learn only the Muslin laws.

    • Islam and the Koran is more deeper than you believe. If the people of USA does not do their research may God has mercy. Buy the Koran, study the Hadith and don’t stop like your life and the life of your children and your descendants depends on it

  12. ANYONE WHO INJURES or KILLS INNOCENT UNARMED PEOPLE are COWARDS. The KILLERS NEED to be BROUGHTto JUSTICE. MY SYMPATHIES forthe INNOCENT PEOPLE KILLED. LET THERE Be JUSTICE in the NAME of the LORD. From Samurai Queen. 😩😩😩

  13. The democrats (pelosi and the squad) are so so so DANGEROUS to our lives and our children. God aloud David to slay the evil giant. The left IS THE GIANT.

  14. Any politician that wants to promote life threatening communism into the USA should be charged with terroism and imprisioned with hard labor for a life sentence
