Mauritania decides on adding blood symbol to flag

The Mauritanian parliament is discussing changing the national flag, which is currently a gold crescent moon and a gold star on a green background.

The proposed new flag design would add two red bands, to represent the blood Mauritanians have shed for their country.

Opposition politicians have criticised the proposed reforms which also include closing the senate, and changing the national anthem.
