Africa's hidden conflict: Thousands flee Islamists in Mozambique

by News Update

It’s been described as one of Africa’s biggest hidden conflicts.

A major Islamist insurgency in Mozambique has forced thousands from their homes and into refugee camps.

But the camps are home to another killer: Cholera and malaria are sweeping the tented cities

Sky News Africa correspondent John Sparks is the first Western journalist to have visited one of the camps – he reports from Metuge.

We saw this with ISIL in Syria… the Major powers have to assist the Mozambique military end this before the Islamists become a region wide problem like ISIL

Remember sky was asking why climate activists are mainly white and whether gender played a role in that parish council argument today while this is happening. Time to stop race baiting and gender baiting sort your priorities out sky. This is real, your agenda is not.
