Mozambique

Peoples Under Threat Ranking:
#48
18

Summary

This is the second year running that Mozambique has risen in the index. An escalation in the conflict between the FRELIMO-led government and the opposition RENAMO over autonomy and marginalization in the north has led to mass displacement and allegations of extra-judicial executions and mass graves. The government procrastinated over allowing entry to a UN human rights assessment mission.
