From the Document: "An armed Islamist insurgency in Mozambique--launched in 2017 with an attack on several police posts in Cabo Delgado province,in the country's north--has burgeoned. The insurgency and state security responses to it have resulted in many serious human rights abuses and killings, widespread social trauma and property destruction, and massive population displacements, creating a complex humanitarian crisis. Insurgent attacks also have prompted the French energy firm Total to declare force majeure and suspenda $20 billion, partially U.S. government-financed natural gas processing project, one of several major projects designed to tap large gas fields discovered offshore in 2010."
