Mauritania's authorities have arrested the former minister in charge of women's affairs, Mantata Bint Hadid ,and the head of the supreme court, Mahfouz Weld al-Murabet, in the context of the current investigation to disclose the implications of the recent military coupe against the president last week.
Well-informed sources disclosed that amounts of weapons belonging to military men were found at Bint Hadid House following the failure of the coupe attempt. The minister's relative assured that the soldiers who hid the weapons are supporters for the President and do not belong to the persons involved in the coupe.
