ICSR Event – The Nexus of Egypt and Regional Terrorism
Speaker: Dr. Nancy Okail
Where: King’s College London
When: December 8, 1pm
In the wake of two of the worst terror attacks in Egypt’s modern history, Dr. Okail discussed the ongoing deterioration in Egypt’s security and it’s place within the wider context of the terror landscape across the region. The recent attacks are part of a growing trend that places Egypt as an emerging frontier for militants, including those affiliated with Al Qaeda and Islamic State.
