Senior counter-terrorism officials from African states who are in Israel for the eleventh annual conference held by the Institute for Counter-Terrorism told <i>The Jerusalem Post</i> of a growing terrorism problem in their lands.

One of the officials, who asked to remain anonymous, said, "What we are seeing is strange to our culture. These crimes are alien to us."

The official said his organization was currently studying the new threat, and that a number of attacks, such as those that employed improvised explosives, appeared to combine local cells with foreign influence and know-how.

"The conference is very useful. It's been an eye opener," he added. "It's a reference point for us. We're seeing a synergy of global forces working together."
