UN chief says African counter-terror strategy needs more support

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday called for more funding and U.N. support to fight terrorism in Africa, but said governments should do more to curb the poverty, abuse and neglect that was driving it.
While nothing can justify terrorism and violent extremism, they do not arise in a vacuum, he said, pointing to grievances that are often driven by state violence and the abuse of power.
Last week, 11 people were killed in an attack by an Islamist militant armed group in northern Mozambique near its border with Tanzania, the latest in a spate of execution-style attacks in the area.
