North African spy chiefs set up intelligence centre

“Spy chiefs from four north African countries have set up a centre for joint operations against Al Qaeda in the Sahel region during a meeting in Algiers, the Algerian daily Al-Watan said Thursday.

The centre will be run by a coalition of high-ranking officers from Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Algeria who would share information on the activities of terrorist groups in the region, their movements and the identities of members, the newspaper said.

The centre will have a rotating leadership, like the regional military post in Tamanrasset, Algeria, where the meeting is taking place and which was set up to coordinate activities with the armies of Mauritania, Mali and Niger.”
