Rwandan Soldiers Kill 30 Jihadists in Mozambique

The Rwandan forces deployed to help contain an Islamist insurgency in Mozambique have killed at least 30 jihadists.

According to multiple sources the troops were patrolling a forest near the northern port town of Palma when they encountered the militants.

Earlier in the month, about 1,000 Rwandan soldiers were sent to Mozambique.

The southern African regional bloc is also deploying troops and Portuguese forces are helping to train the Mozambican army.

The Republic of Botswana led by Mokgweetsi Masisi also deployed its troops to support Mozambique in its fight against Islamic insurgency.

Thousands of people have been killed with about 800,000 others displaced by the four-year insurgency.
