MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) — Government troops in Mozambique have surrounded a base where the leader of an opposition group is living, following deadly clashes between the rival groups last week.
Media in Mozambique say fighting started when members of the opposition Renamo group ambushed troops on patrol in the Satunjira area in the central province of Sofala on Thursday. At least two Renamo fighters died and several other people were injured.
The governing Frelimo party and Renamo have held talks this year to try to resolve political differences. The two sides fought a civil war after independence from Portugal in 1975; a peace deal was signed in 1992.
Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama, who is staying at the Satunjira base, has complained of discrimination against his supporters. The government says Renamo's security forces should disarm.
