On August 7, Mauritanian authorities arrested [ar] Babbah Weld Abidine, a blogger (editor of Lebjawi News blog) [ar -fr] and  a correspondent in the Region of Tagant for the website “Reporters – Mourasiloun”. Two days before his arrest, Weld Abidine went to the Public Prosecution office to inquire about a rape case where there relatives of the victim accuse the authorities of closing the file and freeing the rapist. A warrant arrest was issued against him and he was taken to prison.

On his Facebook Page, journalist Sidi Mohammed Bellamech wonders

من يريد إسكات الصحفي الوحيد في ولاية تكانت، زميلنا المميز باباه ولد عابدين؟

Who wants to silence the only journalist in the region of Tagant, our distinguished colleague Babbag Weld Abidine ?
