Mozambique: six arrested over nun's murder

 Six people have been arrested in connection with the killing of a Brazilian nun in northern Mozambique, where missionaries have received death threats since allegingan organ-trafficking network was operating in the area. The body of Doraci Edinger, 53, from the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate order was found ather home in Nampula, the country's third largest city, where four nuns have received death threats. The death comes only a week after four missionary nuns living in the same town told Portuguese radio TSF that they had narrowly escaped death from an armed ambush after presenting what they said was evidence that local children were being killed so that their organs could be sold. Attorney General Joaquim Madeira declined comment on a possible link between the missionary's death and the alleged organ-trafficking ring. He said there was strong evidence of child trafficking in Mozambique. "We are working with about six children who are said to have escaped from their abductors after going missing for weeks or months," he said. Source: CISA
