Several "armed terrorists" were killed or wounded when Mauritanian troops attacked an Al-Qaeda-linked group in a desert region, an official Mauritanian source said Friday.

"The operation which targeted a terrorist base is complete," the source said. "Several armed terrorists were killed and wounded at the base, located in the desert, which serves as a refuge for terrorist fighters from the nebulous Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb."
