African Union imposes sanctions on Mauritania

The African Union imposed sanctions on Friday on Mauritania, where a military junta seized power in August and overthrew the country's first democratically elected head of state.

In a statement, the AU's Peace and Security Council called on member countries to enforce its decision and stressed that the sanctions should be accompanied by efforts to return constitutional order to the West African nation.
