What would make you think that there would be a nuke set off in the Horn?
The area is good for mining up the stuff needed for Nukes.
The only reason that anyone outside of Africa would use a nuke in this area would be to create a no-go zone in the areas causing piracy problems.
Setting off a nuke on the other side of the channel of the Maghreb and close to Spain, and Isreal....now THAT has some possibilities to it. Or if
they are concerned that a nuclear launch point was being set up on the coast of Africa and aimed at China or Russia.
Now, someone from inside of Africa, or operating inside Africa for political-religious power THAT is possible. However, they would really have to be
operating outside the interests of the Pan-Islamic State for that.
