Western Fears 

Given the rise of al-Shabab in Somalia, Boko Haram in Nigeria and al-Qaeda across Northern Africa, Western nations have now expressed concerns that these groups will join forces and coordinate their training, funding and terror activities.


U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham told the House Armed Services Committee that if the groups are successful, "that presents a real challenge for us.”
