Vatican newspaper draws renewed attention to jihadist violence in Mozambique
July 30, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: On July 29, L’Osservatore Romano devoted its most prominent front-page article to a crisis that has received scant media attention: the brutal jihadist insurgency in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province that has caused 800,000 people, 70% of them women and children, to flee their homes.
The newspaper also highlighted the efforts of the Community of Sant’Egidio, Aid to the Church in Need, and others to draw attention to the crisis and assist the refugees. Pope Francis referred to Cabo Delgado in three of his most prominent addresses over the past year: his Christmas and Easter Urbi et Orbi addresses, and address to the diplomatic corps.
