The al-Qaeda-led terrorist attacks on 9/11 prompted the formation of Islamist militant groups across Africa that continue to wage deadly attacks.
Hong Kong’s 15 remaining pro-democracy legislators have decided to resign en masse, militants in Mozambique who claimed to have ties to ISIS beheaded more than 50 people, and at least two people were wounded in an attack on a cemetery in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, during a World War I memorial ceremony.
Mozambique’s Minister of Defense Jaime Neto said the attackers had attacked the village from the inside, killing civilians and damaging the nearby port.
Scores of protesters rallied on Wednesday to block ICE officials from detaining two men in Bend, Oregon.

In the battle to save a species in South Africa, questioning militancy is yielding results.
Last month, Cyclone Idai devastated southeastern African nations of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. The World Bank has estimated more than $2 billion will be needed for recovery. Mozambique's $337 million humanitarian response plan, largely made up of an appeal for $281 million after the cyclone hit, was only 23% funded as of April 15, 2019.
Weeks after Cyclone Idai devastated the coast of Mozambique, coastal cities are still struggling to recover. Disease and poverty have created increasingly dangerous circumstances to those who have lost their homes.
Mozambique started three days of national mourning on Wednesday after a powerful cyclone and flooding killed hundreds of people and left a trail of destruction across swathes of southeast Africa.
The number of people killed in a powerful storm and preceding floods in Mozambique could exceed 1,000 putting the potential death toll greatly more than current figures.
