Mauritanian and Malian forces raid al-Qaeda camp

seeing anyone Sticking it to Al Qaida is a wonderful thing, knowing that members of Al Qaida are having their ass's handed to them everywhere, makes me happy.

Mauritanian and Malian soldiers have raided an al-Qaeda camp in western Mali, defence sources said.

A Malian security source said there had been "fierce fighting" at the base in the Wagadou forest region on Friday, including the use of heavy weapons.

Wagadou, near Mauritania's border, is an area where al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are known to operate.

Earlier this month, Mali and Mauritania agreed to lead a joint operation to tackle the al-Qaeda offshoot.
