Sixteen Teachers Arrested in Mauritania

On December 23, Mauritanian authorities arrested 16 teachers who had heckled the Education Minister in protest against their arbitrary transfer to remote posts, for having taken part in last year's demonstrations. The police sent these teachers to its various offices in Nouakchott. Journalist Mohamed Salem comments:

 يجدد نظام العقيد ولد باهية اعتقال 16 أستاذا من خيرة أساتذة موريتانيا لأنهم طالبوا برفع الظلم

@medsa20 : Ould Bahia's regime once again arrests 16 of Mauritania's best teachers because they demanded to put an end to injustice
