Mozambique unrest turns key highway into 'ghost road'

A picture taken on October 17, 2013 shows Mozambican government soldiers patrolling an area in GorongosaMozambique’s arterial north-south highway has earned the moniker of a “ghost road” with former rebels staging regular raids ahead of a threatened power grab in the country’s centre this month. “We registered eight attacks by Renamo gunmen last week, which caused a total of three deaths — including a three-year-old — and 23 injured,” police spokesman Inacio Dina told a news conference in the capital Maputo on Tuesday. Renamo, which waged a 16-year civil war that ended in 1992, has refused to accept the results of 2014 elections when it was beaten once more by the Frelimo party, in power since independence 40 years ago.
