US Deploys Green Berets To Defeat ISIS-Linked Insurgents In Mozambique

VOA: Displaced Mozambicans Optimistic About US Support for Counterinsurgency Efforts
WASHINGTON – Mozambicans who have been forced from their homes because of the ongoing conflict in the northern part of their country say Washington’s pledge to train Mozambican security forces brings a glimmer of hope that their situation will improve.
Last week, the U.S. embassy in Mozambique announced plans to train Mozambican security forces to combat violent extremism in the country’s north.
Earlier this month, the U.S. State Department designated an Islamic State (IS) affiliate in Mozambique as a foreign terrorist organization — along with another IS affiliate in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
