Mozambique needs help fighting terrorism. That was the decision made by several Southern African countries this week. They will send troops to combat insurgents supported by the Islamic State. Since 2017, fighting in Mozambique has displaced around 800,000 people.

Todd Nettleton of The Voice of the Martyrs USA says insurgents have often targeted Christians. “They say their goal is to set up a caliphate similar to ISIS in Iraq and Syria. And they are in some cases, literally going door to door. They ask, ‘Are you a Christian? Or are you a Muslim?’ If you’re a Christian, you’re killed. If you’re a Muslim, then you get the opportunity to quote some Quranic verses. And if you can quote them sufficiently, you save your life. Otherwise, you also get killed.”
