About 600 right-wing rebels in Mozambique killed at least 72 people in an attack in the town of Manjacaze, the official news agency AIM reported. It was the second major attack in southern Mozambique in a month. Manjacaze is midway between Maputo, the capital, and Homoine, where more than 380 people were killed by rebels in an attack in July. The Homoine massacre was the worst single incident in Mozambique's protracted civil war. The Maputo government blamed South Africa for the Homoine killings, but Pretoria denied involvement.
