NATO is to open the South Hub; a new headquarters in Naples, southern Italy on September the 5th.

Diplomats said that the center will be in charge of monitoring the ongoing events in Libya and in the African coast, and will work on the North African, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, air corridors and sea lanes in the region.

Atlantic officials revealed that the center's task is to keep-watch on the risks of terrorism, immigration, and extremism.
