Amnesty International has accused Mozambique’s government forces of torturing suspected members of an armed group known as al-shabab.

The Mozambican government forces are also accused being investigated for extrajudicial executions and discarding a large number of corpses into mass graves.

Amnesty International said its report is based on analysis of some videos and pictures from sources in Mozambique.

It indicated that the said actions flout fundamental principles of humanity.

“The abuses attributed to the group known as al-Shabab can never justify further violations by the security forces of Mozambique,” Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s director for East and Southern Africa, said.

“The government of Mozambique must now order a swift, transparent, and impartial investigation to bring all those responsible for such crimes to justice in fair trials,” Muchena said.

The armed group began its operations in northern Cabo Delgado province – bordering Tanzania in the north and the Indian Ocean to the east – in October 2017.

More than 1,000 civilians have been killed, mainly by the rebels, and the total number of fatalities exceeding 1,800.

The Mozambican government has not responded to the damming Amnesty report.
