Algeria on Thursday condemned the “terrorist” attacks that targeted Mozambique and claimed the lives of innocent people.

“Algeria strongly condemns the terrorist attack which left dozens of victims dead, the majority of whom were children and women,” read a statement of the Foreign ministry.

While expressing solidarity with the Mozambican government and people, Algeria vowed “to continue supporting regional and international efforts aiming at combating terrorism.

Local media in Mozambique reported that a group of armed men earlier on Wednesday attacked Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique and beheaded scores of people.

This attack was not the first, as the northern region of the province has seen a series of attacks recently, the source added.
