NARCO RoundUp (SEPT17)

Thursday, September 28, 2017


Summer is over, the Eid and beaches behind us, but North Africa seems to be stuck in a rut. If there’s one theme that ties the September RoundUp together it’s repetition: Algeria has a new old prime minister. Libya is talking about talking again. Mauritania’s president is laying the foundation for a third term. And the Islamic State is making a limited comeback.

Algeria: Tebboune Out / Ouyahia In (Again)
Libya: More Talks (Again
Mauritania: Ould Abdel Aziz Battles His Demons

Algeria: The Islamic State Makes Itself Known
Libya: They're Back...
Mauritania: Cross-border Concerns with Algeria

Algeria: Par le Peuple, pour le Peuple
Libya: How Long Can Libya Hang On?
Mauritania: Other IOCs Start to Pay Attention
