Mauritanian MPs adopt commission to probe ex-president

Lawmakers in Mauritania have adopted a commission to probe the 11 year rule of former President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz.

The MPs approved a committee of inquiry on Thursday night to probe activities of the former president, whose reputation is on the line six months after he handed over the reins to his former right-hand man.

This initiative has the support of the ruling Union for the Republic party, which is entirely controlled by current President Mohamed Ould Sheikh El Ghazouani.
