Mozambique Peace Talks Are Suspended With No Cease-Fire Agreed

Peace talks between Mozambique’s government and the opposition were suspended as the two sides failed to agree a cease-fire to end fighting that’s killed hundreds of people.

International mediators want to hold talks with President Filipe Nyusi before negotiations resume Sept. 12, Mario Raffaelli, the coordinator of an international mediation team, told reporters Wednesday in the capital, Maputo. He appealed to both sides to “refrain from all violent actions to relieve the suffering of the Mozambican people.”
