A massacre that took place in Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique on April 7th came to light only two weeks later.
The local police say that Islamist militants brutally killed at least 52 people from the village of Xitaxi in Muidumbe district.
According to the witnesses, the local youths had previously refused to join the radical group, which angered its members.
Some of the victims were reportedly beheaded. It is currently unknown which group was responsible for that particular attack, but that area has lately been seized by a group called Shabab, reports Yahoo News.
Meanwhile, the national police commander Bernardino Rafael made a statement just last week, claiming that Cabo Delgado was completely free of any radical guerrillas.
