Mauritania Stops Relations with Israel

Mauritania has ended its relations with Israel, according to a report on Sunday by Reuters. The African nation began the process by closing Israel's embassy in the capital of Nouakchott and expelling Israel's diplomats following last winter's Cast Lead counterterror campaign in Gaza.

The embassy was attacked in 2008.
