Islamic Suicide Blast Outside French Embassy (Mauritania)

A Muslim suicide bomber blew himself up Late Saturday in front of the French embassy in the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott wounding two French citizens, Al Arabiya TV reported.

The Muslim bomber, who died in the explosion, had a belt laden with explosives, police said, and staged the explosion a little before 7:00 pm near the wall of the French embassy complex.

The French embassy said the two guards were hospitalized after the attack but were only being treated for shock and had not suffered any injuries.

“The Westerners are in hospital but their lives are not in danger,” a police official said.

It was not immediately known who was behind the attack.

The attack came three days after Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, who toppled Mauritania’s first democratically elected leader in a military coup last year, was sworn in as president of the Saharan country after winning an election last month.

Defeated opponents have denounced the poll as a fraud, but France said it was ready to re-engage with the Islamic state, which has pledged to make the fight against al-Qaeda a policy priority.
