People sit outside an overcrowded house in an area that has become one of the main arrival points for displaced persons fleeing from armed violence raging in the province of Cabo Delgado, in the Paquitequete district of Pemba, northern Mozambique, 21 July 2020. Radical Islamist militant groups seeking to establish an Islamic state in the region, such as Ansar al-Sunna, have claimed responsibility for some of these attacks over the past year. The insurgent groups had taken control of strategic villages dotting the coast of the northern Cabo Delgado province - which are located more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the provincial capital, Pemba - for several days before they were driven out by troops belonging to the Mozambique Defense Armed Forces (FADM).
