AQMI in the Maghreb
Another piece in the North Africa Journal on the ever increasing and present threat of AQMI in the region. AQMI has for some time now extended its operations to the Sahara region threatening state interests and tourists in Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso and Chad. This is perhaps where most of the International support should lie, as it threatens the stability of the region and gives more ammunition to local regimes in their pursuit for anti-democratic policies.
