    Currently watching Dakar in Africa and attempting to locate Internet Cafes near High Value Targets. My initial findings are here - any other agents observing same location can give me a shout; found some interesting things out.

    Institutions labelled as 'purely and specifically' internet cafes are few and far between in Dakar; there are only two identified as such spaced out across the peninsula.

    All the high value targets in the area are located on the southern hook of the peninsula (Presidential Palace, administrative and government centres).

    Comparing this with other African centres of activity (although I haven't been apprised of other targets by other agents) I'm fairly surprised; it seems that there are more clusters in places like Kenya, Johanasberg and so on. It's almost as if Dakar is intentionally dark in this aspect; something in and of itself that might need to be investigated further at a later stage. Do the authorities in Dakar know something is afoot, and have they recently moved to ensure that Internet Cafes near to HVTs are shut down?

    If I broaden the search to Wifi hotspots inside locations such as hotels, etc. I can locate a few such points but would assume that places such as hotel hotspots and residential areas don't have the required connections\bandwidth\number-of-people required for such attack.
