Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has visited the northern province of Cabo Delgado in an area where security forces are fighting Islamist militants. Earlier this week, it was reported that the militants had invaded the main port of Mocimboa da Praia, and put it under their control.
Mozambique is set to go for another 30 day state of emergency, beginning Friday due to the novel coronavirus. President Filipe Nyusi made the announcement on Wednesday as he revealed a plan to ease restrictions in the coming days. He added that the actions are critical in containment of the virus.
