On 9 March, Indian Police Authorities shot and killed an individual believed to have ties to ISIL. The individual was suspected of being involved in a train bombing that injured 9 people. ISIL and other Islamic terrorist organization have a very deep foothold within India and all personnel within the country are advised to maintain a heightened state of situational awareness.
A new ISIL linked group, ISGS (Islamic State of Greater Sahara), within the Sahel Region of Africa. All persons in this area should be alert to a heightened risk of terrorist activity and a greater risk of "infighting" among ISGS and other organization in the area. The area includes, but is not limited to, the countries of Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, and Mali.
A separate, follow-on report covering other events in Ghana will be published later today. While that information will be of great benefit, it is entirely too much information to be put into a global summary and is more deserving of a separate entry later today or early tomorrow morning (16-17 MARCH 2017)
