MOZAMBIQUE:DEFENCE FORCES OVERRUN RENAMO ZAMBEZIA BASE

At least eight people were reportedly killed when the Mozambican security forces stormed the major base of the Renamo rebels in Morrumbala district, in the central province of Zambezia, according to a report on the independent television station, STV.

This illegal base of the Renamo militia was set up late last year in Sabe locality and given the title of a “general staff headquarters”. It is from this base, that Renamo has launched attacks in Morrumbala and neighbouring districts.

The police spokesperson in Zambezia, Jacinto Felix, told reporters “the defence and security forces stormed the Renamo headquarters in Morrumbala, and currently a team is on the ground assessing the damage caused”.

But he claimed that nobody had been killed or injured in the attack which lasted for about two hours. The Renamo gunmen all fled from Sabe.
