Stability: International Journal of Security & Development
abstract
The Algerian terrorist assault in January 2013 that was carried out by Mokhtar Belmokhtar and his ÒBattalion of BloodÓ activists against a BP-Norwegian-Algerian-Japanese gas facility in In Amenas, Algeria, is worth considering as it provides a rare glimpse into several key dimensions of terrorist group dynamics that are important for scholars and counter- terrorism practitioners to understand.
