Cabo Delgado: the bishop and the urgency of a new Timor | opinion

Jihadist terrorism, against which Cabo Delgado has been fighting since 2017, is taking on a complex nature. It begins before the discovery and brutal investment in exploration for natural gas off the coast of Mozambique that deteriorated relations with Tanzania. The radicalization of the Muslim-majority population in this Mozambican region in foreign madrassas, the influx of other radicals from neighboring countries and the support Daesh later took over for Al-Shabaab caused more than 2,400 deaths (data from the NGO Acled) and about 600,000 displaced.
