NGO Calls for No ‘Live Ammunition’ in Mozambique

Amnesty International urges the Mozambican police not to use live ammunition to disperse violent demonstrations unless lives are at risk

The London-based human rights organisation, Amnesty International (AI), has urged the Mozambican police not to use live ammunition to disperse violent demonstrations unless lives are at risk.

AI’s Muluka-Anne Miti, states that, "While we recognise that the police are trying to contain a violent protest, live ammunition - which amounts to lethal force - should not be used except when strictly unavoidable in order to protect life."

The organisation says international standards require an effective investigation be carried out into all cases of death or serious injury as a result of the use of force or firearms by the police.
