 File under: al-Qaeda in North Africa

The violence will trigger fears of a renewed round of Islamist violence in the West African nation that has been rocked by incursions made by jihadist groups based in neighboring Mali.

This is as close to confirming Frank G’s article’s suggestion of Al Qaeda in North Africa as can be done before tracking the contacts in their electronic devices
