Mauritania designates 10 new border crossings
According to Maghrebia
Mauritania designates new border crossings
As part of an ongoing effort to curb trans-national trafficking, illegal immigration and terrorism, Mauritania designated ten new border crossing points on Saturday (April 17th). Last February, Mauritania identified 35 official crossing points on its borders with Senegal, Mali, Western Sahara and Algeria. All foreign visitors to Mauritania are required to pass through a land, sea and air point of entry.
I presume this means the 10 new posts will be manned along with the other 35?
Or have they reduced from 35 to 10 manned posts?
Offhand I can think of a dozen land crossings to all neighbouring countries (air and sea may be another half dozen?).
And of course it's not clear if these are all/will be open to non-Africans (eg: those from north Mori into WS and Tindouf region are not, AFAIK).
