More than half of the suspects accused of participating in Islamist militant attacks in Mozambique’s gas-rich northern province of Cabo Delgado have been acquitted due to insufficient evidence.
The provinceâ€™s court has confirmed the acquittals.
The courtâ€™s spokesperson, Zacarias Napatima, said those acquitted are among 186 suspects on trial.
The high number of acquittals is thought to be due to lack of expertise in prosecuting terrorism-related cases.
