A year ago, ISIS was not a name usually associated with North Africa. Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Magreb (AQIM) was the large terrorist group in the region, and ISIS was considered a Syria/Iraq problem. And yet, one year later, the tables seem to have turned. ISIS has expanded various “colonies” or “provinces” in North Africa, mainly in Libya, and there have been attacks in Egypt and Tunisia as well. ISIS seems to have clearly overtaken AQIM in the region, and even AQIM seems to be aware of it. What next for North Africa?
