In Niger, three US Army soldiers were killed in shelling

It is known that the position of Al-Qaeda has significantly increased in both Niger and Mali, despite the fact that Mali has a rather large peacekeeping contingent, which also includes members of the Baltic army.

In addition to US troops, several soldiers of the local army were also killed in Niger. According to various sources - from two to five people.

The situation in different regions of Africa deteriorated significantly after NATO effectively liquidated the state of Libya. Well-armed groups carry out terrorist attacks both in Libya itself and in other countries of northern Africa, the states of the so-called Horn of Africa, as well as in the mid-west of the continent.
