Prosecutors in France have opened an investigation into TotalEnergies to establish whether the energy giant can be charged with involuntary manslaughter linked to an Islamist militant attack on its facilities in Mozambique.

It follows a legal complaint lodged by survivors and relatives of people who died in the attack.

They accuse the company of failing to protect subcontractors and not adequately assisting with evacuations – allegations Total categorically rejects.

A large number of people were killed three years ago, when jihadists attacked the town of Palma in northern Mozambique, where Total had developed a major gas plant.
