Mozambique: Islamic Extremists Attack Gas Company Vehicles

On 21 February, suspected Islamist extremists conducted a series of attacks on vehicles carrying contractors affiliated with US-based oil and gas company Anadarko Petroleum Corp in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado province. The attacks took place on the road between the town of Mocimboa da Praia and the company’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) project-construction site in Afungi. At least one person was killed and six others were injured.

Although extremists have been carrying out sporadic attacks in Cabo Delgado province since October 2017, this is the first set of coordinated attacks against an oil and gas company in the region, marking a potential significant change in tactics. Further coordinated attacks of a similar nature on oil and gas companies in Cabo Delgado should not be ruled out in the future.
