MAURITANIA---The one-eyed terror
leader Moktar Belmoktar, considered
by many to be the most dangerous
man in the Sahara, is now officially
joining forces with a Mali-based
jihadist group and vowing to support
Islamists in Egypt, according to a
statement posted yesterday.
The announcement of the alliance
known as "the Mourabitounes" for-
malises an emerging union between
Belmoktar s followers and the group
known as MUJAO, or Movement for
Oneness and Jihad in West Africa. Their
comments were carried by the Nouak-
chott Information Agency, a Mauri-
tanian site previously used by Belmoktar
to convey messages.
The two groups said they had decided
"to confront the Zionist campaign
against Islam and Muslims" by uniting
jihadists from the Nile to the Atlantic,
spanning all of North Africa. They also
spoke of their desire to target French
interests in retaliation for the French-
led military intervention of Mali.
The militants also urged fellow
jihadists to "co-operate against the sec-
ular forces who reject all that is Islamist
and who have forced the eviction of
our Muslim brothers in Egypt."
Egypt s Mohammed Morsi, an
Islamist who became the country s first
freely elected president, was unseated
in a July 3 coup.
The comments could be seen as a
"call to arms" but also underscore the
group s desire to unite jihadists across
the African continent, said Andrew
Lebovich, an analyst who focuses on
political and security issues in the Sahel
and North Africa. (AP)
islators, considered by
many citizens as both
overpaid and greedy, are
quietly attempting to
change a constitutional
provision that recently
took away the parlia-
mentarians powers to
set their own salaries.
The salaries for mem-
bers of parliament have
sparked widespread out-
rage. Legislators in June
agreed to accept a salary
of about US$75,000,
down from the
US$120,000 or so mem-
bers previously earned.
The average Kenyan earns
about US$1,800 a year.
Legislators in recent
days moved a motion to
change the constitution
to remove themselves,
judges, magistrates and
country assembly mem-
bers from the category of
Salaries of state offi-
cers, including the pres-
ident, are determined by

a public uproar.
