A group of officers, supported by the Americans, from General Abdourahamane Tchiani’s inner circle, but questioning his authority, intend to facilitate the intervention of ECOWAS. Their objective is to legitimately bring themselves to power and thus put an end to any solution for the return of President Mohamed Bazoum to the helm of Niger.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) evacuated today 179 migrants from Libya to Niger. The group included children, women at risk, survivors of violence, people with serious medical conditions, survivors of trafficking and some who had recently been released from detention, according to UNHCR.
