The Islamic State has achieved the most notoriety in the Middle East, but some of its fastest-growing and most lethal affiliates are in Africa. The Allied Democratic Forces, an Islamist insurgency affiliated with IS, began in Uganda but now operates primarily in the area of the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo shown on this map. According to a recent United Nations report, the ADF killed more than 1,200 people in the eastern DRC in 2021, an increase of at least 50% over 2020. www.aljazeera.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/DRC-ITURI-NORTH-KIVU-1000x562-1.jpg (Map from Al-Jazeera)
