MAPUTO (AFP) – Four police officers and an ex-rebel leader were killed in clashes in central Mozambique on Thursday, a local official said, amid renewed tensions between the government and its former civil war foes.

“At three o clock in the morning, Renamo attacked the police force. The commander of the Renamo force died and four police officers,” Chibabava district administrator Arnaldo Major told AFP.
