Terror triumvirate: ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram training together in Mauritania: analyst | Fox News
This is going so well.“The situation in Mauritania is a powder keg very few people are talking about.”- Veryan Khan, Terrorism Research & Analysis ConsortiumAt least 80 trainees, recruits from the United States, Canada, and parts of Europe, including France, are known to be training at the camps, according to a TRAC source who visited the camp and obtained documentation. Most of Mauritania's population of roughly 3 million is concentrated on the coast, around the capital of Nouakchott, while the rest of the country, which is the size of Texas and New Mexico, is arid desert and sparsely inhabited. The camps are far from the population centers.
“This is not a travel destination,” Khan said. “The only reason to be there from a Western country is to train for terrorism.”
