MAPUTO, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- Seven people were beheaded and three young girls kidnapped by armed men early Thursday in Mozambique's northern Cabo Delgado province, state radio station Radio Mozambique (RM) reported.

The attackers entered the houses in a village in Macomia district before beheading seven people they encountered, some escapers told RM.

The bodies were discovered when some villagers who had slept in the woods at night returned to their houses.

In some districts, residents abandoned their homes for fear of incursions by extremists.

Three girls, aged 13-15, were missing, villagers said. Enditem
