Accused Salafi members head to Nouakchott court 21 May

From AngolaPress

[In Mauritania] Eleven accused Salafi Islamists will go on trial in the Nouakchott criminal court begin next Monday, judicial sources affirmed here Monday ... They are mainly accused of undergoing training abroad (in the camps of the Salafi Group for Predication and Combat, now the Maghreb branch of Al Qaeda). For over ten years, alleged Islamist groups have been regularly arrested and later released provisionally or for various other reasons. But this is the first time judicial authorities are going to organise a trial for the members of the "militant" Islamist group, observers said.
