 TERRORISMUS: Jihadisten Aktivität in Afrika infographic

Der Kampf gegen Jihadisten verlagert sich nach Afrika

March 5, 2019 -- Während die Vereinigten Staaten und ihre Partner den Kampf gegen die Gruppen des sogenannten Islamischen Staats in Syrien und Irak einschränken und sich aus Afghanistan zurückziehen wollen, verlagert sich der Fokus der internationalen Jihadisten immer mehr nach Afrika.

With less need for counterterrorism resources in the Middle East or Afghanistan, Africa’s militant movements are likely to come more onto the radar of external powers, as well as become a magnet for foreign fighters, according to U.S. security thinktank Stratfor.

The United States has been particularly active in the Horn of Africa, using its base in Djibouti to support operations against al-Shabaab and IS militants in Somalia.

In West Africa, the U.S. military’s Africa Command (AFRICOM) has continued to develop regional logistical capabilities that indicate a longer-term commitment to supporting counterterrorism operations there.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
