ALQAEDAAl-Qaeda could possibly be fighting on behalf of deposed regimes in Africa, especially where its interests are at variance with the United States and the French in particular. Born out of Algeria, its main base of terror in Africa, Al-Qaeda has a long haboured hatred for anything French as the latter was responsible in erecting a puppet leadership in Algeria.  

So, it is not surprising that Al-Qaeda members in Northern Africa are calling on the people of Mauritania to fight against the leaders of last fortnight’s coup that toppled the democratic elected government that has been in power since elections were held in 2007. That call to arms also includes France, Israel and United States, the main backers of the coup in Mauritania
