5 Apr 2012 Mauritania Police Attack Protesters

Standard

Video of Mauritania’s newest protest movement “MJM” staging a protest outside Ministry of Justice in Nouakchott. A few dozen youth disrupted traffic and chanted anti-government slogans. Several members of the February 25 Movement also attended in solidarity. Apart from a solitary tire burning in the road, and cars having to manoeuvre around the crowd it was a peaceful protest, but police deployed the standard response to disperse them: tear gas, violence and arrests.

Fortunately, all those arrested were later released.
