Three voluntary workers of a Spanish NGO were kidnapped in Mauritania to 170 kms of the capital.

It is very possible that were kidnapped by Tuaregs, since the sale of drug and the traffic of weapon to what the tuaregs were devoting themselves this one very chased(prosecuted) by the government of Mauritania, for what the Tuaregs, they have decided to kidnap western them to sell to Al Qaeda and to extract money with his sale.

Hello,

two interesting articles
Quote:
Neighborhood conflict: What happens there between Algeria and Mali?

Anxious to use for political purposes the downturn, some years ago, the former GSPC in its territory, Mali acts as if he intended to sanctuaries that organization (now called AQIM) and make it a means of pressure against Algeria.

Neighboring countries, Algeria and Mali are expected to cooperate to solve problems facing them, particularly on the security front. The Sahel region is increasingly affected by the terrorist phenomenon. The Americans are very attentive and their project to install the AFRICOM military base in the region (Algeria preferred) remains valid, especially s

The terrorists are laughing in their sleeves

The legendary good-neighborly relations maintained long ago by two neighboring countries, Algeria and Mali have submitted a few days stretched out. The reason is the difficult equation of European hostages held by the North African section of the notorious Al-Qaeda nebula. Islamic terrorists have recently set a new ultimatum of a few weeks for the release of six Europeans. In addition, they threaten to end the lives of two French and Italian hostages if by chance they were not getting the expansion of their members held captive in Mali. Wanting to be more precise, they set a deadline at the France and Mali: February 20, 2010. The Italian Government, it enjoys greater largesse: the ultimatum on the run until March 1. The question is difficult. There are firstly that Algeria does not want any money for the release of the killers of the desert. Elle en a déjà tellement souffert de par le passé que la simple perspective de les savoir hors des geôles maliennes la fait frissonner. She has already suffered so much in the past that the mere prospect of the knowledge outside of the jails Mali shudder. Failing to influence Mali in its decisions, she chooses to put pressure.

Hi Ulrich
Ditto. Information that's potentially useful to a traveller, up to date and relevant, it is very welcome.

Hello,

analysis and factbox for Al-Qaeda's Sahara wing
Quote:
DAKAR, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Al-Qaeda's Sahara wing has raised its profile with hostage-takings and cocaine smuggling, threatening already weak West African states with crippling criminality but not large-scale terror attacks.

Revenues from ransoms and involvement in the drugs trade in countries like Mauritania, Mali and Niger are providing funds and could lure recruits from among poverty-stricken populations at a time the group's leadership is under pressure in Algeria.

But the main fall-out from the group's activities is likely to be a spike in violent organised crime in regions with burgeoning resource projects as opposed to ideologically driven attacks designed to grab headlines and kill scores.

"(AQIM's) strength is that the states are weak ... The states are often thinking about political survival rather than strategy," said Soumeylou Boubeye Maiga, a former Malian defence minister now working as a security consultant.

"This is a zone that will become increasingly very important," he added, referring to significant oil, gas and mining potential in the region.
Reuters - ANALYSIS-Qaeda fuels security, criminal woes in Sahara states

Quote:
Here are some facts about the group, which is the southern arm of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM):

WHO ARE AQIM?

Led by Abdelmalek Droukdel, AQIM burst onto the public stage in January 2007, a product of the rebranding of fighters previously known as Algeria's Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC).

The Salafists had waged war against Algeria's security forces but in late 2006 they sought to adopt a broader jihadi ideology by allying themselves with al Qaeda.

AQIM scored initial high-profile successes with attacks on the government, security services and the United Nations office in Algiers in 2007. Since 2008, attacks have tailed off as the security forces have broken up AQIM cells in Algeria.

However, the group's southern wing has become increasingly active in recent years, seizing foreigners for ransoms and attacking pro-Western installations in Mauritania.

Some analysts say pressure by Algeria's security services is forcing the group to shift its base of operations south, where it would have more freedom to operate.

Urgent: Arrest of two fighters of Al Qaeda around Zouerate
Click for larger picture

Informed sources have told ANI that Kehl Ould Mohamed Ould Haj Ahmed and Bouya Boutna Ould Hmoudna, both alleged members of Al Qaeda, were arrested Friday in the northern Zouerate.

The two prisoners, previously sought, have been sent an urgent this afternoon by military air route to Nouakchott where they are currently in the hands of investigators DGNS.
The arrest of two suspected fighters from Al Qaeda would be reached after a firefight between a group of Al-Qaeda and a unit of the Mauritanian army in the north east of Zouerate.

Among other things the Reuters factbox states the situation "...has also created a market for freelance gunmen to seize foreigners, who are then passed on to the Islamists."

I suppose he's carefully not suggesting it has ever happened, but earlier reports have parroted the existence of these 'inverted bounty hunters'. To me it sounds most unlikely but has the advantage of making the area look more dangerous then it really is - always a good twist with news from dodgy countries.

There is a big difference between AQIM possibly outsourcing a grab (still unlikely IMO) and, as the article suggests, opportunist gangs roaming around the Sahel looking for targets to grab and deliver to AQIM for whatever they'll pay. I suspect AQIM is far better organised and sophisticated to allow that.

If we have six people kidnapped out of the tens of thousands of westerners passing through every year, the risk is still near nil. And with so few incidents, there can't be a number of gangs roaming around looking for targets.
But mustn't there be some level of cooperation when they can get the laissez-passer all the way from the coast to east Mali?

A side-note, I was driving around with my Mauretanian friend in south Burkina couple weeks ago. He is Peul, so lean and tall. When he donned his black chesh and yellow sun-glasses, locals started yelling "terrorist!" after him!
They must've seen the pics on television or perhaps in the papers, with a Burkina woman being held hostage, so they are aware of what a terrorist presumably looks like.
Like a "Tuareg", eh?

some level of cooperation...

With these guys' reputation in Mori I would see it more as intimidation - and even then there aren't that many people you need to intimidate if they took the route some of us speculated they did. And from the ANI report above it's possible they had comrades (fuel?) in Zouerate.

Once past there, there are two easily avoided army bases in Mori east of Guelb (and one abandoned one I think), and nothing in north Mali apart from, I presume, Tessalit and Kidal.

AQIM has postet an statement for the in Mauretania arrestet terrorists on an islamic webside.

(An appeal to the black Chinguetti Alradin behind bars)

Sheikh: Abu Anas al-Shanqeeti may God protect him


Praise be to God, prayer and peace upon the Messenger of God and his family and companions and guided Bhdah either:

The Lord Almighty has told us in his book, it divides into two slaves and make them parties, he said is the one who created you begun and a disbeliever and a believer of you and God Seer of what ye do (Gain: 2) and told us that the continuing conflict between the two parties can come to God is what is required is wisdom and his will, he said but no one set of people to each other to the ground and rot, but God is preferred to the worlds ((al-Baqarah: verse 251) and between us Muslims that our enemies the unbelievers do not like us but also disbelieve disbelieved said and if born as disbelieve disbelieved both Vtkonon ((women: from verse 89) and said d many of the book, if Erdonkm disbelievers after your belief of envy from themselves after they found out the right ((al-Baqarah: verse 109) and said and will not accept you the Jews nor the Christians until you follow their religion Say God is Huda Huda While followed lusts after which science comes to you from Allah a guardian nor helper ((al-Baqarah: 120)
And tell us what they are doing to this end that is also disbelieve disbelieved everything in their power and energy, seeking to achieve Sometimes fighting as he says and continue to fight you until Erdokm about your religion if they could ((al-Baqarah: verse 217) The story of Pharaoh, he said we will kill their sons and their wives come and Nsthieddi overhead Qaheron ((the norms: verse 127).
And sometimes expulsion and deportation and the output from the home as he says The unbelievers of the emissaries to Nkrcengm of our land or our religion in Taudn ((Ibrahim: verse 13) and the Almighty said said publicly of his people who are proud to Nkrceng O Shuaib and those who believe with you from our village or in Taudn our religion ((of the norms: from verse 88).
And sometimes in prison as he says While your unbelievers plotted to Ithbtok or kill you or Ikrjok and plots and plotted God and God the Best of Planners ((for the Anfal: 30) The tale of Pharaoh said to Moses said that, while others took a god to Odjalink prisoners ((poets: 29).
And sometimes carrots and false promises and false claims as he says And those who disbelieve say to those who believe follow our way and hold your sins and the sins are Bhaji something they are liars * being shouldered and carrying weights and being shouldered with the Day of Resurrection, and asking in what they were forged ((Spider: 12,13) and said meaning They will not enter paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian that wishes Say: Bring your proof if ye are truthful ((al-Baqarah: 111)
And sometimes pretending they are keen on the interests of religion and the nation as he says And Pharaoh said: A man kill Moses and let the Lord I am afraid to change your religion or to show corruption in the land ((Mu'min: 26)
And sometimes tricks and quirks and other types of bargaining, and the hum of all this to disbelieve or to give up even a fraction of this debt until Qailhm said: "O Muhammad, worship with us in our gods and worship your Lord is with you in"
Has enjoined upon us to reject all those methods and not to give in to something which does not care about its people and God said And incline not to those who wronged Vthompskm fire and to prevent you from God and parents not be helped ((Hood: 113), and the Almighty said and to judge them what Allah hath revealed and follow not their desires and admonish them to tempt some of what Allah revealed to you ((round: 49), and the Almighty said but that does not Thbtnak I almost left them a little * If Ozguenak double life and the weakness of death, and does not find you, we champion ((Isra: 74.75)
We see today the enemies of Islam in their war against Islam and Muslims that has knocked all doors and decorated these tricks and opened doors for people, and set up ambushes and hunting Hbailhm for all to appreciate from the Muslims.
Having realized that the United atheistic disbelief that it can not afford to resist the Mujahideen, suggested to the agents and their clients that the Arab rulers convinced your people that we do not want only peaceful solutions, and we strive in the negotiations with the Taliban and other subtle and deceiving them and Dsa the poison in the food, and recommended they be assisted to achieve luminaries, including good use of their Highnesses, or called themselves Ballostiin Alaatdaliyn, and it was the latest manifestation of a timely implementation of this new American project, as announced in these days Juggernaut Mauritanian and bravado proud of him and he opened a door for dialogue with the prisoners, as designated by the Salafi jihadists, and that devoted to a dialogue with the Commission of specialized investigators and scientists picked up this matter and the media, and I thought it my duty to be legally declared aspects of this gap blessed mouth of Islam and Morocco on this platform really a platform of free enterprise Andalusia God bless the efforts of those who made it to appeal to those the brave heroes of Islam and black lions and the sons of the patient unwavering belief unjustly imprisoned and aggression, peace and mercy of God be upon you
Not alive, God and the good your face bright, and the greatest reward of Allaah, and Faraj Krpetkm for you and your plight and raising of both worlds and Qdrickm Zkirkm, cut your enemies and God root out hastily on our hands Bswalhm.
Dear Brothers .. The Concerns is to talk to you but I will try that outlined in the points that you may Taatomlunha Taatvhmunha and what you have seen where the right Qubltamoh what was wrong and the false Rddtamoh.
First: I certify that I am God I love it and ask him to unite us under the shadow of his throne, and God knows that I am sent me to direct this appeal to you but your love and concern for your interest in this world and the Hereafter, and only what God has enjoined us Nasrtkm your advice and I therefore I put to you as Muslims, not non - the descriptions and titles, your case is an issue for all Muslims.
Second: Know your womb the God that this world is the full and widest, is felt prison for the believer, as the Prophet peace be upon him as narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh by Ala from his father from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet peace be upon him said: ((minimum prison for the believer and the infidel )) do not curtail the energy as long as you fed up with prison inmates on the right and for God, O people of the prison Do not incline to peace, incline you God is with you and your work will not Iturkm ((Muhammad: verse 35) In reading other Pentecostal) does not incline to peace, while you incline and God is with you your work will not Iturkm ((Muhammad: verse 35)
Thirdly: There is lost on your minds that the most people Valomthel Valomthel scourge of the prophets, and that the believer may suffer as a religion, and that God tests His believing slave to honor him not to insult, and for each book and measure for all things and that God can not be attained only fear God, and cheer the victory comes with patience, but with the anguish and the vagina) that with hardship comes ease (comfort the hardness will not overpower the permission of God, and know that your brothers do not sleep on the grievance and what Oallah Nsokm Insokm will, God willing, tomorrow, although serious, to a relative.
Fourth: This does not mean that we underestimate the cause, both, but of God that we are aware of the size of Mesepetkm, and we share your grief and we sacrifice our souls and ourselves to you, not how the Prophet peace be upon him say as in the correct: ((Mthelalmwemien in their mutual love, mercy and compassion if he complained Kmthelaljsd member of it collapsed, the rest of Aljsdbalsohr and fever)) and this I assure you of things:
The first command: to lift your family except you and the families of Muslims in trust, we brought Vthmlnaha, and which hand is my soul will spare no effort in Tkhaliskm of your family, and Nbzln to do so all we can Mufadap of fighting, and that He decrees of God in the souls and money, By God will not give up so as long as our bodies carry our heads, and as long as a prisoner of the Muslims in the prisons of the enemies of God.
The second thing: we will not lose sight of your cause, but we describe in our councils and we declare in our media and make it a thorn in the throats of our enemies.
Third: we are saying there always in our prayers to God to release you, and establish you, By God you forget that not even in my prayers.
Dear Brothers .. With my assurance on these matters, I commend them to you of things:
First: Oamra Majalskm learning book your Lord and the Sunnah of your Prophet, and the biography of your predecessor, it could establish you on your religion, and "Beware of conflicts and differences, and to see one of you is empty, and you then beware of the controversy and debate in matters that are useless from underneath do not entail any work or service to the religion of God.
II: Persistence Persistence Servants of Allah .. And doing a lot of urgency to God as he was saying of the Prophet peace be upon him, as in Sahih Muslim: ((O bank exchange hearts of our hearts for your obedience)), and know that the work Boukoatimha, but not Osotkm the former of those afflicted by the ancients as Aptleetm and even over what Aptleetm Vsberoa and immobilized them was the consequence, you studied with modern art-Khabab bin may Allah be pleased with him famous with you, and you must not care about getting out of prison more than you care about consistency principles, and know that) who fought for he labors for himself, God goes to the Worlds ((Spider: from verse 6).
Third: Alhjawa pray to God in response times to show you the order you by the hand and that supports the brothers, and also Alhjawa to pray on your enemy, you are oppressed and the oppressed, not including the invitation and God the veil.
Yes, and alert you to things:
First: Know that you are your endurance Tervon morale of your brothers, how many of the good news reached for our brothers the prisoners in various parts of the world rose by the energies and the revelation of Gmtna, and we did not enter it pleased the recent statement issued by the famous Sheikh Abu Qatada the Palestinian validate God and Faraj him, you are you If, on the prisoners honored Gap great gaps of Islam, Islam Viyakm be brought by you.
The second thing: Consider the risk of what the sign Almtrajon themselves, and dragged him from the great affliction, and that enough for you to note three things:
First: bone sin which inflicted the soul, and which is now many of them because of a war against Islam and Muslims seek refuge in God, though not only what God said from the curse of Alkatmin of science it would be enough, so how about the suit and others with knowledge of what is manufactured.
Second: They are letting them down the mujahideen brothers in dire need of them, but their tongues Zlem them, have been awarded by Abu Dawood and classed as saheeh by a group of scholars that the Prophet peace be upon him said: ((no man bless the man who let down the Muslims in the Muslim position that violates the sanctity and detract from the display only let down by God in the position like a triumph)) This in Saket for supporting his Muslim brothers, how Balambeshr himself to fail them.
Third: Balzlp replaced by pride, and the name of fights for the sake of God on behalf of one who is sitting crawfish submissive server enemy and the enemy of his Lord.
Third: I would like to caution you therefore that in response to this alleged trick trick dialogue unconditionally and without limitation, to justify in terms of Scengm Vtaftnoa not feel so, remember that the owner may God have mercy on him, said a man came innovator O Abu Abdullah: "I want to Ojadlk "he said but I am sure of my religion, either you go to Chuck like you. What if you you said you like that to these people?
Brothers, conscience and religion, in terms of this farce, farce of the dialogue, which is not only a U.S. project malignant, I would say to you:
Know well, and be absolutely certain that you are not intended for only one of two things:
Either retreat from the principles and peaceful apostates and their masters of the Zionists and the Crusaders, and the waiver of the Fundamentals of Religion and Enmity Kalolae and arbitration law and atonement of kaafir Allah and His Messenger and disbelief idol and jihad for the sake of God, either retreat from these principles were also decreased by these Almtrajon Menhsmon Ihoronkm who, until someone said: "The army and police Mauritanian his brothers in faith" as it was picked up by the media, who was yesterday near Ihrdhana the infidels and killings and their struggle and fight, and the other is not surprising, said: "Democracy is producing does not produce the gun" means that the jihad for Allah , and either stay locked up behind bars until God would open between you and your enemy, this is the truth that does not equivocation.
Otherwise Fajbrune For God Sjnokm any guilt? Although this last possibility is that they want you, let him say them as the Prophet Yusuf, peace be upon him Lord, prison is dearer to me than to call me ((Yusuf: verse 33)
Dear Brothers .. But if you have seen you, and you know Bwaqekm you to increase in the establishment of the argument and clarify Milestone Vtstjibwa of this dialogue, so much the conditions:
The first condition: identification of subjects to be discussed clearly, and not more than a point only after the completion of which has been accepted.
The second condition: to be a reference back to when the conflict is the Quran and Sunnah and no more, with the help of confused to understand what their words advances.
The third condition: that does not speak in this dialogue is doomed to apostasy and blasphemy original, this detective of our own we the people of Islam.
The fourth condition: that the introduction of Taataahdoa all right if it is found and return to him and call him and frameworks for the nation.
The fifth condition: to attend the local media and foreign air the debates live on the air is not entitled to change in the words of one of the parties.
This with the caveat at the beginning and the end to injustice pure Scengm not initiated nor endorsed by the mind, how and more charges against you is that you want to make the imposition of God as enjoined enjoined fasting and prayer, he says Fighting is prescribed for you hate you and that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you and Allah knows and you do not know ((al-Baqarah: 216).
....................
Here a section of the brother of the captive Khaddim LED fat and break God's Family:
"So what is the solution ?!... the press exists so transferring all of the details of the dialogue ... if we had the right scientists should repent to God, and acknowledge that we have the right ... and if the right when we repent to scientists God also .. but the press should be present so that no coating .. so as not to deceive Muslims and reportedly signed a dialogue and we have not responded ... No, we came here to attend the dialogue ... why? .. because we know that we have right .. we have the right to fight the infidels in all the land of Muslims to get out of Muslim land east and west .. until we liberate the Muslim countries .. and we have the right to fight the junta governing the country's counter-Muslims, even Nzihaa from the necks of the Muslims to fight and the sword. "uh.
........................
Sheikh Abu Anas may God protect him:
I would also like to draw attention to the way in the last three corps with the task of dialogue as the way I mean to disperse malicious cunning brothers and address of dialogue with every one separately, otherwise why not the be all but in the presence of the brothers and the public, provided that it does not speak only Almtnazeran, On this occasion, I am asking questions to this trio as they have described as the nation's scientists, who must be due to in each case, and I answer them with the full clarity, and before it is put to say:
I Ekstm you elders of the case, otherwise why not Thoron Ibn Abdel Aziz, to apply Islamic law and rejects the inferior man-made laws?
Why not Thaorunh to atone Btagot the United Nations?
Why not Thaorunh to send armies to support the vulnerable people in Gaza? In Nigeria, but they are nearer to him!?
Why not Thaorunh to cut relations with the Americans, French and other enemies of the religion?
Why do not Thaorunh to be confidential to pursue Ahatmin the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him and his Sabeans people in full view of the world? Or insulting the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him does not move you do not have a finger!
Why do not Thaorunh to show the Muslims the legitimate document, who was imprisoned by these honorable brothers?
Why not Thaorunh to repent to his Lord of the law recently enacted by the infidel, which increased by disbelief kufr to mean anti-terrorism law?
The Questions:
First question: should the malfunction if the ruler al-Shara, the laws of Allah, the Governor of the Jews, Christians and Muslims fought them, as does Ibn Abdel Aziz, completely against al Qaeda, they recognized you Muslim? I hope the answer to this question from the book of the year.
Second question: Where do you find in the Qur'an and Sunnah, that the death if a Muslim killing a dhimmi on the assumption that the people of disclosure are now that the punishment is imprisonment with torture and humiliation and torture him?
The third question: What is the meaning of the words of scholars, including the unanimous, that, if raided the enemy countries of the Muslims, or one inch of occupied land, it must be for the people of that country, that kind Iqatloh, the failed Those who followed, and so includes obligatory prayers of all Muslims?
Suffice to these questions and I answer it and here I Ontzerkm.

Ulrich, I must confess to me the above message doesn't hold any intelligible content, translated or not.

The deadlines are getting closer, four days left for Camatte (Feb 20). For the Italians, March 2. Kouchner was back in Bamako trying to persuade president Touré. The Spaniards seem to be on their way to freedom after ransom of 5M USD was paid.
For the French and the Italians, no ransom has been mentioned, only release of prisoners. Does this mean that the Spaniards are held by MBM (the businessman) and the others by Abou Zeid (the ideologue)?

AFP: French foreign minister in Mali as hostage deadline nears

edit
I guess this is what the above message is about
" Nouakchott - A leader of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has called on al-Qaeda prisoners in Mauritania to rejoin the group in its desert strongholds. Abdelrahman al-Tandaghi, also known as "Abu Anas al-Shanqiti," called on the prisoners to re-link with the organization and take up "jihad" in a video released by AQIM's media arm.
The call comes as groups of Mauritanian intellectuals claim they have made strides in their government-sanctioned efforts to convince captured al-Qaeda militants to renounce "extremist thought" and violence.
The efforts are part of the government's new strategy to combat extremism through education."

Good way of summing it up. I wonder if that's how it is. Abou Zaid seems like a real figure, but over the years I've lost track of whether MBM exists or not.

yes, like that it is! MBM, now for 3 - 5 years married with a mauritanien tuareg woman and so under the protection of the womans tribe, holds the Spaniards.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
