#Mauritania using prisoners’ TV confessions to cancel #Mali mission

Standard

Three prisoners described as a “Nouakchott terrorist cell” are to be tried in court this week in Mauritania. Two of the men were captured in Mauritania, the other in Mali, in an operation which reportedly followed a car accident. The crash is alleged to have scuppered plans to attack the French Embassy in Nouakchott using a vehicle packed with explosives. These details have been revealed by two of the detainees in televised confessions, during which they also expressed remorse, and called on all Mauritanians in northern Mali to give up their campaign and return home.
