Niger: Libya Has Become Incubator for Terrorist Groups

During an interview with Radio France Internationale on Wednesday, Niger’s Minister of the Interior, Massoudou Hassoumi, said that southern Libya had turned into “an incubator for terrorists groups”, and that the countries who were involved in the 2011 overthrow of Muammar Qadaffi “need to provide an after-sales service.”

Hassoumi was responding to a question about remarks made by US Intelligence Officer James Clapper last month about the terrorist threats Africa’s Sahel region was facing, which includes Niger.
