ISIS in the Pacific: Assessing Terrorism in Southeast Asia and the Threat to the Homeland

April 27, 2016 10:00 AM | 311 Cannon House Office Building

With ISIS’ continued push to recruit and radicalize around the globe, this hearing will examine the current threat ISIS affiliates and supporters pose to U.S. interests and allies in Southeast Asia. Multiple recent terrorist attacks and public declarations of allegiance by local militant groups, and a growing number of ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria from the region, demonstrate the potential danger this poses.
