In this post, I collected maps from reports produced by the US Congressional Research Service to provide a picture of the major current extremist threats in the regions of the Greater Middle East and Africa.
The first map refers to the area of the Levant and to the activity of groups such as the Nusra Front and the Islamic State. (click on the map to enlarge)
The second map illustrates the situation in the Horn of Africa and the operations of Al Qaeda affiliates there.
The third map is about the areas of North and West Africa and the activity of local extremist groups.
