The young hot-head has reportedly been arrested for shooting a girl in the early hours of Sunday morning, 22 Jan 2012. Stories describe a drunken argument during which the girl was shot. She was reportedly taken to Nouakchott Hospital where we are told doctors said a bullet was lodged in her lung. Later report said she was being airlifted to Morocco for treatment in a specialist hospital. It’s been the hot gossip online all day long. I can’t confirm any of these reports because it has not been published in any official or traditional media – seems like there is a virtual blackout on the subject.
For added drama, the website that broke the story was apparently hacked – for at least the 3rd time. Personally, I am hoping Taqadoumy stays offline until they figure out how to run a website without getting hacked so regularly. Once is unfortunate. Twice is careless. Three times is just downright embarrassing.
