State and Defense Department officials testified on instability in the Sahel, an African region south of the Sahara Desert stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee questioned the witnesses about various issues troubling the Sahel, including democratic backsliding, poverty, corruption, extremism and terrorism, and Russian influence--such as propaganda and financial support to military juntas. Some policy recommendations were discussed, including ways the U.S. can assist the region. Coups have recently happened in Burkina Faso and Guinea, as well as two coups in Mali. close
