Terror alert issued
The US embassy in Mozambique said it has information pointing to the likelihood of 'imminent attacks' in the country's north, which has been rocked by recent 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. A report on the eNCA site notes that Palma is expected to become an energy hub after promising discoveries of natural gas. However, the region has seen a string of bloody attacks on security forces and civilians since October. US oil and gas giant Anadarko suspended some activities in the region and moved affected workers and contractors to a secure site, according to a source close to the company who declined to be named.
