The best illustration of the recent report by human rights organization Amnesty International on the torture and extrajudicial killings of Mozambican security forces is this leaked video. On it, people dressed in the uniform of Mozambican soldiers catch up and beat with sticks a naked woman, and then shoot her.

Some abuses can indeed be attributed to the harsh African realities, but everything has a limit. If the Mozambican authorities and the army command do nothing to correct this situation, then both the ranks of Islamic State and the number of local residents loyal to them will only grow.
