Jihadists Rising in East Africa

Three years after the defeat of the Islamic State caliphate, ISIS is still terrorizing the world. At its height, the Islamic State, or ISIS, held about a third of Syria and forty percent of Iraq. In 2015, ISIS expanded outside the caliphate into a network of affiliates in at least 8 other countries. With affiliates carrying out attacks in Nigeria, Afghanistan and now Uganda, people are bracing for future attacks while the U.S. considers its role in fighting Islamic extremism. CBN News Senior International Correspondent Gary Lane is on today’s episode to talk about the growing terror threat in East Africa along with the hotspots to watch in 2022.
