Maputo — The Mozambican police in the district of Guro, in the central province of Manica, have destroyed an arms cache of assorted weapons including landmines, mortars, RPG-7 rocket launcher grenades, offensive and smoke grenades and AK-47 ammunition clips.

The weapons belonged to the former rebel movement Renamo, which for 16 years until 1992 waged a war of destabilisation against the Mozambican government.

Speaking to reporters in Maputo on Tuesday, Pedro Cossa, spokesperson for the General Command of the police, explained that the weapons were found in bushes following a tip-off from a resident.

According to Cossa no arrests have been made and the weapons were showing signs of neglect.

During his weekly press briefing, Cossa said that 169 crimes were reported last week, down from 191 for the same period last year. These include 44 cases of homicide and assault and 117 robberies.

Cossa added that the police have arrested 1,339 people for crossing the border illegally, 74 for illegal immigration and 124 for other crimes.
