Mauritania's Aziz says to return home in coming days

PARIS (Reuters) - Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz said on Tuesday he felt well and would return to his West African state "in the next few days" after recuperating in Paris from a shooting accident last month.
Aziz, an ally of the West in its fight against al Qaeda in Africa, was flown to France on October 14 after his government said a military patrol had fired on his convoy accidentally. He was speaking to journalists in Paris.
