Mauritania charges AQIM suspects

A Nouakchott court charged two Mauritanian nationals with trying to join al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), AFP quoted a judicial source as saying on Tuesday (February 12th). The men allegedly planned to fight in Mali.

Suspect Brahim Ould Hmeida is the older brother of one of the terrorists involved in last month's Algeria gas field attack. He was also accused of involvement in the 2007 Aleg murder of a French tourist family.
