British ex-cop grabs AK-47 and kills two ISIS Islamists to escape five-day assault on Mozambique gas city: Another Briton is killed and others missing as jihadis seize town and behead victims
- Dozens of people have been killed in a five-day assault on Palma, Mozambique
- Nick Alexander gunned down two militants after his convoy was ambushed
- Philip Mawer from Somerset is among dozens of expats missing after the attack
- Thousands of people have been evacuated from the town near a major gas works
An ex-police officer shot dead two militants after breaking into a government vehicle and grabbing an AK-47 as he escaped an ISIS massacre in Mozambique.
Nick Alexander, a dual British-South African citizen, was rescued on Sunday having spent two nights crawling through the bush after his convoy fleeing a hotel in Palma was ambushed.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on Monday and announced they had seized the coastal town after days of fighting, the terrorist group said in a statement on its Telegram channels.
The jihadis in Mozambique have declared that they want to impose Sharia. If they get hold of these gas developments, they could have plenty of money to finance their jihad for years to come. “Mozambique military launches offensive after ISIL attack,” Al Jazeera,
“Al-Shabab fired on civilians in their homes and on the streets in Palma, as they tried to flee for their lives,” said Dewa Mavhinga, Southern Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “Mozambican authorities should move swiftly to protect civilians and bring all those responsible for abuses to account.”

Jihadists continued their sixth straight day of fighting against the Mozambican army Monday for control of the strategic northern town of Palma, as reports came in that dozens of civilians have been killed and bodies were littering the streets.
Thousands were estimated to be missing from the town, which held about 70,000 people before the attack began last Wednesday.
The fate of scores of foreign energy workers was also unknown.
