West Africa anti-terror force tops summit agenda

A multinational force from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon already exists and is due to launch a major offensive on Boko Haram around Lake ChadWest Africa should “think harder” about developing a new anti-terror force, a top regional official said Saturday, as Niger announced the latest deaths among its troops battling Boko Haram jihadists. Over the past year West Africa has suffered terror attacks on nations previously untouched by jihadists, as well as confronting an Islamist insurgency that began in northeast Nigeria but has spread to several neighbouring countries. “The multiplication of terrorist hotbeds in our region compels us to share information on their activities, to communicate, co-ordinate and harmonise our efforts,” said Benin’s Marcel Alain de Souza at an ECOWAS summit in Dakar.
