Mauritania shuts down internet after disputed elections

"This week, Mauritania disrupted connectivity following contested elections. The June 22 polls were historic in nature, with the expectation that it would mark the first ever peaceful transfer of power since independence in 1960. But after the ruling party’s candidate, Mohamed Ould Ghazouani was declared the winner by 52%, opposition candidates said the vote was marred by irregularities. Immediately afterward, officials suspended both mobile data and fixed-line connections. All of Mauritania’s consumer internet providers, Mauritel, Chinguitel, and Mattel were impacted, internet monitoring organization [previously OTF-supported] NetBlocks reported." - Abdi Latif Dahir, Quartz

UN experts urge immediate release of detained Mauritanian blogger (OHCHR)

Rare slavery verdicts spark hope for ending caste-based slavery in Mauritania
For centuries a hereditary system of servitude has forced members of the Haratine ethnic minority to be subjected to slavery in Mauritania, working without pay as cattle herders and domestic servants, despite an official ban.

In March, Mauritania sentenced two men to 20 years in prison and one woman to 10 years in prison for enslaving their fellow citizens. These three rulings are extraordinary in the West African country, which has exceptionally few prosecutions for slavery. IDSN welcomes the verdicts as a sign of progress in the country.
