NARCO RoundUp (APR19)
Ramadan Mubarak! Despite the approach of the Holy Month when things tend to settle into a mellower and more contemplative rhythm, there is a lot going on in North Africa: Algeria is in the midst of a profound political transition, Libya is at war with itself, and Mauritania is preparing for the first democratic transition of presidential power in the country’s post-independence history. With the exception of the war in Libya, the security outlook is neutral. And with the exception of Mauritania, the hydrocarbons outlook is negative.
