Quotes

"There's a direct link between the scarcity of wildlife, the labour demands of harvests and this dramatic increase in child slavery" said Prof Justin Brashares from the University of California Berkeley, who led the study
"But one of the beauties of this country is that you can come, be accepted, you can make it here, you can adjust to life in Canada and once you’ve been here it seems to me your allegiance should belong here, especially when you’ve acquired citizenship. That’s the key.”"
"The deteriorating security situation in Iraq underscores the government's inability to combat the militant group Islamic State-formerly known as ISIS, which now controls vital oil and gas infrastructure, while threatening other key assets across northern Iraq" said Maplecroft
" he said in a statement. Somalia has been a largely lawless state since the fall of Barre, with warlords, religious groups and clans fighting for control of the country. But since al-Shabab lost control of Mogadishu in 2011, some Somalis in the diaspora have started to return home to start businesses and take up political positions. The fighters have continued to carry out attacks in Mogadishu - and attacked the parliament building and presidential palace this month. Some 22,000 African Union troops are helping the government to try and win back territory from the group. They have taken back several key cities over the last three years, but al-Shabab still controls many smaller towns and rural areas of the country where it has imposed Sharia and banned music which it regards as un-Islamic."
