MAPUTO (Reuters) - Mozambican lawyer Gilles Cistac, who has said opposition calls for decentralization of power were backed by law, was shot dead in the capital on Tuesday, police said.

Cistac, of French origin, was in a taxi on his way to work when a car carrying four men pulled up alongside the cab and one gunmen shot him several times, police spokesman Orlando Modumane said.
