One South African was killed in the ambush that left more than a dozen people dead.

The UN says 11,000 people were forced to flee as a result. 

A technical mission is now being deployed to the country.

"We think this technology deployment will mean military experts joining the military defence force at a ministerial level to help Mozambique in its attempt to have a full understanding of the dynamics of this conflict," says Adriano Nuvunga from the Mozambique Centre for Democracy and Development.
