2008 coup d'etat

On the morning of 6 August 2008, by 9:20 local time, BASEP troops seized the President, Prime-minister, and Interior Minister in the capital, Nouakchott. Mauritania television was taken off the air earlier, but Persian Gulf-based al-Arabiya television played an announcement said to be from the new junta; according to the announcement, General Abdel Aziz, chief of the BASEP (Presidential Security Battalion), would head a "state council". The airport was closed at the time.
