Government forces in Mozambique are fighting to regain control of a remote area in the north.
Soldiers are trying to push back ISIL-linked fighters in Cabo Delgado province, a resource-rich region.
The fighters have taken control of the port of Mocimboa da Praia near offshore gas projects.
Over the past three years, monitoring groups say more than 1,500 people have been killed.
Will other countries need to intervene to stem the violence?
