Suicide Attacks in Africa

Anneli Botha recently wrote a lengthy and well documented "Practical Guide to Understanding and Preventing Suicide Operations in Africa" for the South Africa-based Institute for Security Studies.  After describing the problem and misperceptions concerning suicide attacks, Botha provides a history of attacks in Kenya, Tanzania, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, and Somalia.  Botha discusses al-Shabaab suicide attacks in Somalia, AQIM attacks in the Maghreb and the situation in Nigeria.  The study also offers comments on preventing future suicide attacks.
