Re: Watch as it Develops - The Staged War Against Islamists in Northern Mali
still hearing a lot of conflicting reports about this from my Malian friends. Most recent, he's dead but he wasn't killed by French/Chadian/Malian forces (accident? Or his own?)

Here's another interesting piece of the puzzle. Several months ago, right before he was going to announce his country's participation in Mali conflict, - the President of Mauritania was accidently shot 5 times by his own military. Mauritania is not participating in the Malian action.

Now, we learn this. There was an attempted military coup in Benin last month. Benin is supposed to be participant in the Mali conflict - but unsure if any of their boots are actually of ground. Who's behind it?

Thanks for keeping us updated on this. I remember Mauritanian president getting shot, thanks for Benin info, someone is pulling the strings for sure. Mauritania is a traditional Islam stronghold in the region, i'll try to dig in for some more info.

Islamist group Ansaru on Monday claimed the kidnapping of seven foreigners, including one Briton, in a deadly raid on a construction site in restive northern Nigeria at the weekend.
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]


 Quoting: insertfunnyusername


A breakaway Islamic extremist group said Saturday it killed seven foreigners who its members kidnapped from northern Nigeria, according to an online message purportedly from the group.

The message, identified as coming from Ansaru, could not be immediately verified by The Associated Press, though it included photographs the group claimed showed the dead, who were kidnapped from a construction company compound in February. Those kidnapped included three Lebanese citizens and one each from Britain, Greece, Italy and the Philippines - all employees of Setraco, a Lebanese construction company with an operation in Bauchi state, local officials said at the time.
