Heavy gunfire erupts in Niger capital two days before presidential inauguration

Gunfire erupted in Niger’s capital Niamey close to the presidential palace and lasted for over 15 minutes, reports quoting residents said. Government officials said a group of soldiers behind the ’coup attempt’ has been arrested. This comes just two days ahead of President-elect Mohamed Bazoum’s inauguration. Violence has escalated in the country’s border region with Mali after Bazoum’s election.
