REPORT REVEALS THAT ILLICIT TRADE IN EAST AFRICA IS FUNDING EXTREMISTS, TERRORISTS, AND WARLORDS

On 29 March, the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) published a new report – An Unholy Alliance: Links Between Extremism and Illicit Trade in East Africa.  It says that East Africa is being critically undermined by illicit trade.  Terror groups such as al-Shabaab and ISIS-linked affiliates in Somalia and Mozambique, as well as Central African militias, urban gangs, and international crime groups are increasingly targeting East Africa as a destination market for illicit trade, as well as a transport hub for the mass import and export of illegal goods.
