Six policemen in Mozambique jailed for killing election observer


Six policemen in Mozambique have been found guilty of murdering an election observer ahead of last October’s election.

Anastacio Matavel was shot as he was driving in the southern city of Xai-Xai. His car was hit by 13 bullets.

The elite police were caught after their car collided with another vehicle as they fled the scene.

Activists, journalists and members of the opposition are regularly killed and abducted in Mozambique.

However, the cases rarely come to trial.

The six policemen were sentenced to between three and 24 years, while a seventh accused, a civilian, was acquitted.
