Sierra Leone was holding 11 Guineans including military personnel in custody on Wednesday following a confrontation at sea involving the two West African neighbours' navies, Sierra Leonean officials said. The incident occurred early on Monday morning off the coast of northern Sierra Leone near the countries' border, the officials said. Vessels from the two countries exchanged gunfire after Guinean naval forces illegally boarded a Chinese fishing vessel in Sierra Leonean waters, said Al Shek Kamara, Head of Operations for the Sierra Leone Police.

Fishing boats sit beneath the skyline of Mozambique's capital MaputoBy Manuel Mucari MAPUTO (Reuters) - State-owned Mozambique Asset Management (MAM) missed a May 23 deadline to make a $178 million loan repayment but remains in talks with creditors about rescheduling the debt, finance ministry spokesman Rogério Nkomo said on Wednesday. In the latest twist to a debt crisis and graft scandal, Nkomo told Reuters a sovereign guarantee behind MAM's $535 million loan from Russia's VTB Bank would not become an issue until the talks concluded. Shortly afterwards, a finance ministry source told Reuters that MAM had missed the loan payment and the government had failed to honour its guarantee.
