Boko Haram Has Ties With Al-Qaeda - Algeria Intelligence

Leadership (Abuja)
14 November 2011

Algeria intelligence has said that there are ties between Boko Haram and the Algerian-based north African branch of al-Qaeda, the Reuters Report.

Speaking to reporters yesterday in Algiers, capital of Algeria, the Algerian deputy foreign minister, Abdelkader Messahel, said, "We have no doubts that coordination exists between Boko Haram and al Qaeda. The way both groups operate and intelligence reports show that there is cooperation."

Algeria's assessment of ties between AQIM and Boko Haram carries authority because Algeria has the biggest intelligence-gathering operation on al Qaeda of any country in the region.
