Mozambique: Opposition fighters attack convoyOctober 30, 2013 @ 7:41 am
MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) - Mozambique's state radio says fighters from the main opposition party have attacked a convoy of vehicles in a central province, wounding four people.
The assault Wednesday in central Sofala province follows operations in which government troops overran two opposition bases, one in Sofala and another in the north of the country. Two fighters belonging to the Renamo opposition group were killed.
The radio report says the fighters who targeted the convoy escaped after stealing food and other items from the cars.
The governing Frelimo party and Renamo have held talks this year to try to resolve political differences, but clashes have increased in recent days. The two sides fought a civil war after independence from Portugal in 1975; a peace deal was signed in 1992.
