Strijd tegen jihadisten verplaatst naar Afrika

March 5, 2019 -- Terwijl de Verenigde Staten en hun partners operaties tegen Islamitische Staat in Syrië en Irak terugschroeven en zich uit Afghanistan willen terugtrekken, wordt de focus van jihadistische activiteit verschoven naar 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
