Al-Qaeda leaders discussed a plan to arrange a peace deal with the government of Mauritania, according to documents seized by U.S. Navy Seals when they raided Osama bin Laden's Pakistani hideout in 2011 and made public by the U.S. government Tuesday.The peace plan could then be renewed, the document says.Senior U.S. intelligence officials familiar with the documents recovered from bin Laden's hideout said they had no evidence that any such peace deal was ever reached with authorities in Mauritania, or whether the militant group ever contacted anyone in Mauritania to discuss the plan directly.
