Former Mauritanian President Dies Of Heart Attack

Ely Ould Mohamed Vall, the former head of a military junta who ruled Mauritania from 2005 until 2007, died Friday of a heart attack while on holiday, his family and an official news agency said.

Born in 1953, Vall served as the head of a transition government that handed over to Mauritania’s first democratically elected president, Sidi Ould Cheikh Abdallahi.

Vall led a 2005 coup against dictator Maaouiya Ould Taya, but kept a promise to step aside for elections two years later.
