NARCO RoundUp (MAR18)

Monday, March 26, 2018

Spring is in the air in North Africa and things are starting to move again. The Algerian political rumor mill is starting to grind, a perverse stability is taking root in Libya, and speculation about Ould Abdelaziz’s intentions are budding in Nouakchott. Security throughout the Maghreb is still curiously – but not acutely – problematic. And the oil sector from Libya to Mauritania is on the upswing.

Algeria: It is NOT Chakib Khelil
Libya: Full Somaliazation
Mauritania: Will He or Won't He

Algeria: Social Unrest, not Terrorism
Libya: Risks Raised by Drone Strikes
Mauritania: The Terrorists' Conspicuous Absence

Algeria: Ould Kaddour: The Man, the Myth, the Legend
Libya: Total Confidence
Mauritania: The Hydrocarbons Sector Starts to Gel
