Algeria on Thursday condemned the “terrorist” attack in Mozambique which claimed the lives of innocent people.
“Algeria strongly condemns the terrorist attack which left dozens of victims, the majority of whom were children and women,” a statement of the Foreign Ministry said.
While expressing solidarity with the Mozambican government and people, Algeria promised to continue supporting regional and international efforts aiming at combating terrorism.
Local media in Mozambique reported that a group of armed men attacked earlier on Wednesday Cabo Delgado Province of Mozambique and beheaded scores of people.
This attack was not the first as the northern region of the province has seen a series of attacks recently, the source added.
