Sudanese Salafi group endorses Islamic State’s new caliphate

“A Sudanese Salafi group in a statement on Thursday endorsed the Islamic State militant group that declared a caliphate after it swept through northern Iraq last month. ‘Our Brothers in the Islamic State … announcing an inclusive caliphate is a good job,’ said Sudan’s Al-Attasam belKetab wa al-Sunna, which broke from Sudan’s Muslim Brotherhood in 1991 to establish a stricter Islamist movement.”
