1 June 2012 A group of women are protesting the confiscation of land in the Arafat district of Nouakchott by staging a sit-in outside the presidential palace. The women said that they are prepared to continue their protest until the land is restored. Considering that there are four hospitals and plenty of schools in the area, the government’s official explanation that the land is to be used for construction of a health centre or school is completely unconvincing, added one woman. Another condemned the situation for making tens of families including children and the elderly homeless.
