Vale's Mozambique unit stops using Sena railway after attacks - state news agency

MAPUTO, July 28 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Vale has stopped transporting coal on the Sena railway line in Mozambique which carries coal from the interior to the Indian Ocean port of Beira after gunmen attacked a train, Mozambique’s state news agency (AIM) said on Thursday.

“The train was ambushed as it passed through Inhamitanga, in Cheringoma district in the central province of Sofala. The driver was shot in the back whilst a security guard received cuts from flying glass,” AIM news agency said.

The agency said the attacks happened on Monday.

Vale also stopped using the railway line last month after gun attacks. (Writing by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo; Editing by Alexandra Hudson)
