Jihadist fighters who raided the northern Mozambique town of Palma last month may be planning their next move, analysts say, raising fears of more attacks in the gas-rich Cabo Delgado province. On March 24, Islamic-State-linked militants launched a strategic, coordinated assault on Palma that overwhelmed security forces and caused French energy giant Total to abandon a nearby gas project. The AFP reports that speculation is now rife about what to expect next from insurgents boosted by the latest assault, during which they garnered fresh provisions and ammunition. Analysts and security sources have raised red flags around the provincial capital Pemba, a port town of some 150,000 inhabitants around 400 kilometres (250 miles) south of Palma.
