Head of US Africa command warns of Islamic threat

Published: 03.15.13, 22:49 / Israel News

The chief of the US Africa Command warned on Friday that threats from Islamic extremists in Africa are increasing and if unchecked could pose a greater danger to American interests and allies.


Army Gen. Carter Ham faced some wary members of the House Armed Services Committee, who questioned a robust US military involvement in Africa after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ham said the threats in Africa do not match al-Qaeda or the Taliban in Afghanistan, "but the trend is not good." (AP)
