Mauritania's President has issued Decree 018-99 which declares Sunday, March 28, 1999, the day after the El Id Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday, as a one-off public holiday in Mauritania.

The decree, eventually published in the "Journal numéro : 948- du 15/04/1999 - page 247", thus extends the El Id Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday for a second day in Mauritania, as often happens for religious public holidays in the past (1999-01-13, 1998-04-06, 1997-02-06, 1996-04-26 and 1996-02-18).
