Kill at will, Mozambique

Police in Mozambique have been accused of killing and torturing people with near total impunity.

The human rights group Amnesty International has published a report saying the Mozambique police appear to think they have a license to kill. The group says officials have responded to rising crime rates with often lethal force but, but that they almost never face criminal proceedings.

Police in the southern African nation refused to comment on the report. Amnesty’s report was published just a day after Mozambique’s League for Human Rights said the country’s human rights situation had deteriorated in 2008.

After Mugabe, Mozambique. It seems that the suffering of the humanity is never ending!
