Seven members of a California-based aid group were apprehended by government forces while delivering medical aid to refugees in Mozambique, a spokesman for the group said. David Courson, president of Christian Emergency Relief Team, based in Carlsbad, said those seized include six Americans and a South African. He said they were taken Tuesday to Tete, a town in the country's northwest. Marxist-ruled Mozambique has been racked for years by a rightist insurgency.
