Rwandan and Mozambican troops have retaken a key port city from Islamist militants in northern Mozambique, the Rwandan military says.
It says Mocímboa da Praia located in Cabo Delgado province, home to one of Africa’s biggest gas fields, was the rebels’ last stronghold but the insurgents have not yet commented.
Last month, Rwanda sent 1,000 soldiers to Mozambique to fight the militants, who launched an insurgency in 2017.
More than 3,000 people have been killed and 820,000 displaced during the conflict. END
