Terrorism in Africa
Group #1: Al Shabaab
Al shabaab used to be the militant wing of the Somali Council of Islamic Courts until they took over most of southern Somalia in the second half of 2006. Within the past years since then, they have committed, but also confessed to the bombings of several different places. They have been said to use child soldiers.
Group #2: Ansar Dine
This is another terrorist group that is a major threat the Africa. They are led by Iyad Ag Ghaly, who previously was one of the most prominent leaders during the Tuareg Rebellion throughout the 1990’s.
Group #3: Boko Haram
This group is probably the most well known when it comes to terrorist group attacks on Africa. Many people may know of all the attacks Boko Haram has on Nigeria, but they’ve actually threatened and attacked many other places, such as Niger, Cameroon, and Chad.
