Saudi-led anti-terror coalition unlikely to perform military role
Marwa Abdelwahed talks about the new Saudi-led Islamic Alliance.
Security, Terrorism and Insurgency MA student Marwa Abdelwahed (POLIS) talks about the new Saudi-led Islamic Alliance.
Saudi Arabia has formed what it calls a "military alliance" of Muslim countries to fight terrorism. However, this is a Sunni lead coalition which does not include nations like Iran, raising questions as to how effective this alliance will be.
Speaking on Radio France International, MA student Marwa Abdelwahed spoke to Amanda Morrow about the vagueness of the coalition's mandate, suggesting its intended more for cooperation and to support international groups, rather than for military intervention.
