Global Post interviews Director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council J. Peter Pham on the regional impact of terrorist group Al Shabaab in Africa:
“Just because the group presenting the threat is Somali-based that doesn’t mean the agents it uses to carry out attacks are Somalis from Somalia,” said J Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council in Washington.

“Al Shabaab is increasingly taking on a regional dynamic and agenda, trying to project themselves as Al Qaeda’s primary African operation,” said Pham.
