‘Likelihood of imminent attacks’ in northern Mozambique: US embassy

Maputo (AFP) – The US embassy in Mozambique said Friday it had “information pointing to the likelihood of imminent attacks” in the country’s north, which has been rocked by attacks blamed on jihadists.

“We strongly advise American citizens in the district headquarters of Palma to consider departing the area immediately,” said an advisory posted on the embassy’s website.
