Mauritania's military head of state has opened the door for Maaouiya Ould Taya, the deposed former president in exile in Qatar, to return home but not to take part in forthcoming elections.

The dispute over the territory of Western Sahara should be solved by consensus, Mauritania's leader said on a visit to Morocco.

Mauritania's military rulers have announced a 24-member government, including three women but no defence minister, three days after naming Sidi Mohamed Ould Boubacar as prime minister.

Mauritania's self-declared head of state has named a man to replace the former prime minister who resigned along with his cabinet following last week's coup.

Mauritania's ousted president has said he was taken aback by the coup that removed him from power on Wednesday, speaking publicly for the first time from exile in nearby Niger.
