Mauritania: Confusion Reigns over “Accidental” Shots that Wounded President Aziz

@weddady: The official version on Aziz being “wounded lightly” was completely nonsense. He is seriously injured à la Dadis Camara.. #Mauritania

Twitter update from Mauritanian activist Nasser Waddady upon hearing official reports that Mauritanian president Aziz was accidentally shot (video of Aziz at a Nouakchott hospital). Aziz was then airlifted to a Hospital in Clamart, France for treatments (video).  Mauritanian blogger Vlane wonders why Aziz did not seek treatments in neighboring countries instead of France [fr].
