(RepublicanPress.org) – National security issues seem to have escalated since President Joe Biden entered office on January 20. Iran recently showed off a new missile base. North Korea test-fired ballistic missiles last weekend, according to Japan’s prime minister. Now, an attack in Africa has left the world stunned.
According to a statement by Secretary of State Antony Blinken and British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, ISIS attacks on the African continent have risen by about a third in the past year. The two highlighted how deadly the terrorists are becoming in the region.
The Islamic insurgent group took credit for a deadly attack that began on March 24, in a small town in Mozambique. There are conflicting reports regarding the attack. However, a local news outlet reported that at least 55 people, including “Christians and foreigners,” were killed in the attack.
"That was a difficult moment, it was a massacre to tell you the truth…"

Survivors called the attack “a difficult moment… a massacre.” The Daily Mail reported on a number of atrocities committed by Islamic State members during that attack.
Although President Joe Biden’s secretary of state has discussed the issue, there is a question as to whether the administration is doing enough to tackle the problem.
