Mauritania President Returns to France

Less than a week after returning from France, Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz heads back to Paris on Friday (November 30th) to undergo new medical procedures, AFP reported.

Abdel Aziz flew to Nouakchott last Saturday after spending weeks in France recuperating from a bullet wound. On October 13th, the 55-year-old president was shot by a soldier in what the government has described as an accident.
