For the first time since independence (?) Algerian troops are fighting on foreign soil. 5000 men engaged in SW Libya. In cooperation with French troops watching the Chadian border, and Americans in Niger and 500-800 stationed in Spain. Impressive forces purportedly lined up with the possible goal of securing the Libyan desert (Ghadames, Ghat, Ubari, Sebha....), but really only one source for this story so far.

El Watan is usually well informed, while their stories on occasion may have a touch of added spice, they are mostly based on factual information. With the buildup of French forces in N. Chad and the stories filtering out from S. Libya, this was to be expected for some time...

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
