AQIM Strikes

The organization called "al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb" may be divided, but it struck again yesterday, with attacks on a UN compound an Algeria's Supreme Court. The death toll currently stands at 26, with 177 injured.

Meanwhile, the Jamestown Foundation notes the group's lack of success at mounting serious attacks in Morocco. It seems clear that the while al-Qaeda affiliation may have in some manner allowed the group to enhance its existing infrastructure and operations, it hasn't allowed it to spread into new territory.
