The president of the African Union’s high representative in Tarkovo, Mladen Zvizdak, has warned that the continent’s borders are at risk from Islamic State militants.
“The border of Africa and Europe is not safe for the whole continent,” he told the Associated Press news agency.
Mr Zvzizdag said that the country’s borders had been breached, with “the most serious danger” for the borders in Africa.””
If you’ve got a lot of the population of West Africa, the probability is you’ll have an even higher risk.”
Mr Zvzizdag said that the country’s borders had been breached, with “the most serious danger” for the borders in Africa.
“We’re going to have to deal with it very soon.
It is a serious situation,” he said.
“It’s a major threat to the stability of the continent.”
The border between Libya and Egypt, which is also known as the Sinai, was the scene of an attempted coup in 2015 and the United Nations has accused the Libyan government of using the country to smuggle weapons and explosives.
Mr Zdag warned that countries such as Egypt could be at risk of a repeat of what happened in Libya.
