The governor of the jihadist-hit northern Mozambican province of Cabo Delgado has visited fishermen who have returned to the coastal village of Pangane.

Most people have fled this area, which has witnessed some of the worst attacks since the Islamist insurgency erupted in 2017.

But the group of young fisherman have decided to move back because since a regional force deployed around two years ago to Cabo Delgado to help the Mozambican army regain control of the towns, the violence has reduced.

Cabo Delgado Governor Valige Tauabo made the trip to Pangane to show his appreciation for their return – though it is not officially sanctioned by the authorities given that the militants are known to still operate at a low level.

He gave them fishing equipment and supplies to help them re-establish themselves.

Jihadists were reported to be moving through the area on Sunday.
