Mar 31, 2020 | 11:00 GMT
- Militants captured and sacked two district seats in Mozambique's energy-rich Cabo Delgado province on March 23-24.
- These operations came amid a dramatic increase in the number of attacks in the province and reflect the seriousness of the threat posed by the Islamic State Central Africa Province in Mozambique.
- The growing power of these militants combined with the Mozambican government's limitations and seeming denial of the threat do not portend well.
