    Jihadists – locally known as Al-Shabaab – pledged their allegiance to the so-called Islamic State in 2019. This islamist insurgency is furiously raging in Mozambique. It began in 2017 when armed militants staged their first attack in the northern Cabo Delgado province.

    Their violence has seen more than half a million people flee their homes. In the beginning of 2021, UN officials warned the humanitarian crisis would worsen without international help. DW’s Adrian Kriesch visited a refugee camp in Metuge where people told him just how their lives have been upended.

    Mozambique is a southern African nation whose long Indian Ocean coastline is dotted with popular beaches like Tofo, as well as offshore marine parks. In the Quirimbas Archipelago, a 250km stretch of coral islands, mangrove-covered Ibo Island has colonial-era ruins surviving from a period of Portuguese rule. The Bazaruto Archipelago farther south has reefs which protect rare marine life including dugongs.
