“Defeated” Islamic State preparing for comeback

Graphic News

January 30, 2019 -- Despite President Donald Trump’s claim that so-called Islamic State has been defeated, the militant organisation has yet to be finished off in Iraq and Syria, and affiliated groups remain a threat around the world.

Even though IS has lost virtually all of its former territory, the group is thought capable of sustaining an insurgency in Iraq and Syria as well as sporadic terrorist attacks abroad for years.

Estimates of IS strength range from several thousand to 30,000 fighters. The organisation’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and several top deputies are believed to be still alive, according to Bloomberg News.

21 days to go until 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 days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
