A terrorist cell dismantled on Nov. 24 was found to have recruited fighters for Libya as well as for Mali; al Qaeda facilitated the fighters' travel through the Algerian-Moroccan border to the Sahel region. The influx of Islamist fighters in the Sahel includes Tunisians, Libyans, Europeans, Sudanese, Pakistanis, and a number of Mauritanians, among others.

One of the arrested men was a Moroccan sent back from Mali to conduct sabotage in Morocco.
