Sidi Ould Sidna, a suspected member of the gang of four that shot dead four French tourists in Mauritania last December, was re-arrested Wednesday, along with two others, according to a security source quoted by the Mauritanian News Agency (AMI). The source said Mauritanian security forces arrested the three suspected terrorists, who had been declared wanted for several weeks, in the early hours. They were identified as Taghi Ould Youssouf, Khadim Ould Seman and Sidi Ould Sidna. Ould Sidna escaped from custody in Nouakchott 2 April, when he was due to appear before a judge. The three are suspected of belonging to the terrorist group Al Qaeda in the Maghreb.
