The army has been criticised for brutal response to attacks by fighters in country's northeast.

by

    Human Rights Watch (HRW) says more than 1,000 people in northeast Mozambique have been left homeless by armed attacks in recent months.

    The army launched a response to these attacks, but HRW has criticised the heavy-handed approach.

    Local people say they are equally afraid of the gangs behind the attacks and the army response.
