Islamic State attack in Mozambique revealed in exclusive new footage.

The first pictures of the attack by Islamist militants on the northern Mozambique town of Palma show scenes of absolute carnage and a hectic rescue mission to save survivors who were being hunted down by insurgents.

The bodies of people murdered after being pulled from cars and lorries are littered across the town.

A series of photographs and videos, passed exclusively to Sky News, are the first glimpse at the scale of the assault on the town of 52,000 people by the militants who are aligned to Islamic State.
