Militants in Mozambique attacked an area within the scope of the $ 20 billion LNG project concession for Total.
On Saturday, Bloomberg News said this had significantly increased risks for Africa’s largest private investment project.
The sources stated that fighters from a group allied with “ISIS” attacked the village of Kitonda late on Friday, as Total moved residents of the communities from other parts of the concession area while building export facilities and facilities for other infrastructure, and government forces repelled the attack that lasted until dawn on Saturday. .
This is the latest violence in the province of Cabo Delgado, northern Mozambique, where attacks over the past three years have claimed some 2,500 lives and forced 570,000 people from their homes.
Last week, fighting quickly approached the Total project, prompting the company to evacuate some workers from the remote site.
