The Somalia-based terrorist group, al-Shabaab, has overtaken Nigeria's Boko Haram as Africa's deadliest militant group, according to new figures from the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project. The data, compiled by the Africa Centre for Strategic Studies, showed that al-Shabaab was responsible for 4,281 casualties in 2016, compared to 3,499 committed by Boko Haram. Al-Shabaab, which has ties to al-Qaeda, is largely operational in Somalia with some incursions in neighbouring Kenya.
