Niger: UN condemns deadly attacks

UN Secretary-General António Guterres strongly condemned the “despicable attacks,” his deputy spokesman Fahran Haq told a news briefing on Monday.

Niger, like its Sahelian neighbours Burkina Faso and Mali, is facing growing cross-border insecurity. The weekend attacks come less than a week after another attack by unidentified gunmen in the Tillaberi region of western Niger left 63 people dead.
