Staff Report

ASTANA, Kazakhstan -- Observers in Central Asia are expecting a "moderate" (code yellow) terrorism threat in 2017, CA-News.org and Kazinform reported.

"This year will be characterised by the partial return of insurgents who fought in Syria and Iraq," Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies Director Erlan Karin said during an Astana lecture Monday (January 9).

Some insurgents will head to Afghanistan, while others will go home, he added, according to CA-News.org.

"New organisations will be founded and old ones will fade away," he predicted.
