Thousands of people in Niger have protested near a French military base in the capital Niamey to express their support for the military government.
They demand the immediate withdrawal of French troops and diplomats from the West African country.
The demonstrators gathered near the 101 Squadron airbase on Friday, as they chanted slogans such as “Down with imperialism,” “French soldiers, Niger is a sovereign country, leave!” and “Macron, Niger is not your property.”
This is a developing story that HO1 will continue to monitor.
