      EU launches training mission in Mozambique to help armed forces fighting Islamist groups

      The EU Foreign Affairs Council on Monday announced the launch of a military mission to train Mozambican forces trying to stabilize the restive, gas-rich Cabo Delgado province. EU personnel should share expertise on counter-terrorism and civilian protection efforts. The mission is to "train selected Mozambican units to help armed forces in their efforts to bring back safety and security," top EU diplomat Josep Borrell said after the foreign ministers' meeting in Brussels.
