After Mali and Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, another country further south, is bruised. The jihadist operations have now reached the Gulf of Guinea. The security situation in the Sahel Sahara has been deteriorating since 2005, a landmark year. The year of a highly publicized hostage taking in Algeria with its authors rewarded a handsome ransom paid in Mali where the hostages were freed. That same year, an isolated small Mauritanian garrison in Lemgheyti, a remote desert well, was overrun by radicals.

The renewed activities of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), of its branches and of groups linked to this terrorist organization, are of particular significance.

The 16 January 2016 massacre was a tragic wakeup call on Ouagadougou, the Burkina Faso capital. Thirty people were murdered during a horrendous assault. Much more were wounded. Material destructions at both sites, the Splendid hotel and Café Cappuccino, are huge and the population, local and foreigners alike, is stunned and deeply traumatized. After a string of bloody terrorist attacks throughout 2015 in Chad, Mali, Niger and Nigeria, legitimate questions cry for responses.

Countering violent extremism (CVE) has become a cottage industry in both the global North and South, as the so called Islamic State and other transnational armed terrorist groups continue to threaten the very foundations on which national and international peace and stability have rested for decades. For the countries of the Sahel-Sahara and North Africa regions, brutally affected by the terror scourge, CVE has been embraced as the new overarching framework for continued pursuit of the “war on terror”.
