DAKAR - Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz was "lightly wounded" after a Mauritanian military patrol accidentally opened fire on his convoy, a government spokesman said on Saturday.

"On his way back to Nouakchott, the presidential convoy was shot by a Mauritanian patrol...as they did not recognize his convoy. The president was shot on that occasion but he is lightly wounded and his life is not threatened," Communications Minister Hamdi Ould Mahjoub said on national television.
