Q: What’s the current security situation in Tunisia?
Q: How does the security threat personally impact on you – and others working in North Africa?
Now only a couple of weeks ago in mid-March terrorists struck at the Bardo Museum.
Q: What happened there? And were there rumblings, warnings, or chatter on the streets that an attack may be imminent?

Q: What is this about?
Q: Why do you believe western commentators have overlooked the significance of the ISIS/al Qaeda threat in North Europe?
Q: What are the most notable warning signs, in your view?
Q: When we look at terror entities, should we still separate ISIS from al Qaeda? What is the difference between the two?
Q: Is ISIS signalling the beginning of an ongoing terror campaign in North Europe? If so, what effect is this having on the state governments in the region?

Q: And, are you safe up there?
Q: Why is it important to you that you base yourself so close to a world threat?
