The State Department Bureau of Counterterrorism has just released its Country Reports on Terrorism 2014. The Africa Overview section discusses terrorist groups on the continent such as al-Shabaab and countries in the Horn of Africa.
It describes Djibouti as a supportive US counterterrorism partner. Ethiopia had no terrorist attacks in 2014, but the US expressed concern about its use of the 2009 Antiterrorism Proclamation. Eritrea said it wanted to be a partner in the war on terrorism but the US said it is "not cooperating fully" with US counterterrorism efforts. The report described Kenya as a location of growing radicalization with extreme violence on its borders. Although al-Shabaab lost control of much territory in Somalia, it continued to conduct a broad spectrum of asymmetrical attacks throughout the country.
