Three Spanish aid workers were kidnapped in Mauritania on Sunday, officials said of an attack that will heighten security fears in the West African desert republic where al Qaeda-linked gunmen operate. The three were abducted as they travelled in a convoy through the Saharan state, a Spanish Foreign Ministry spokesman in Madrid said.

Down to just a dozen birds in the 1970s, the pink pigeon has been brought back from the brink of extinction to about 380 birds today. Conservationists say the key to success has been intensive management, although captive breeding programmes were stopped about a decade ago. Today the birds are held if they are sick or if they need to be ringed or electronically tagged for tracking purposes. Picture taken April 16, 2008. REUTERS/Ed Harris (MAURITIUS)

An endangered pink pigeon sits on a tree on Mauritius' Ile Aux Aigrettes April 16, 2008. Endemic to Mauritius, the pink pigeon was facing extinction in the 1970s with just a dozen or so birds remaining. Almost going the way of the dodo several centuries before, the pink pigeon suffered following the introduction of new predators such as rats and monkeys and the loss of natural habitat. Intensive conservation has slowly brought the pink pigeon back from the edge, with almost 400 birds in the wild. Picture taken April 16, 2008. REUTERS/Ed Harris (MAURITIUS)

A Mauritian says special prayers during a ceremony for a newly renovated temple in the northern town of Cap Malheureux November 19, 2006. The Indian Ocean island is closer to Africa than India, but the Hindu population forms roughly 70 percent of the 1.3 million population, growing rapidly in the late 19th century when the end of slavery in 1835 forced sugar plantations to find new workers.

Mauritius citizens make their way to a polling centre in Vacoas July 3, 2005. Mauritians voted for a new government on Sunday, hoping it will nurture an economy hurt by the loss of preferential trade deals which had underpinned the Indian Ocean island's relative prosperity in Africa. The ruling coalition of Prime Minister Paul Berenger was running neck-and-neck with Navin Ramgoolam's opposition Social Alliance after campaigns appealing to the poor - those most at risk from threats to the island's sugar and textile sectors.
