Niger: inbetween two worlds

While the war in Ukraine rages on, another brews in the West African country of Niger Republic. The crisis began July 26 2023 when soldiers deposed President Mohammed Bazoum in a coup and closed the country’s borders, citing corruption, high treason and an undermining of the country’s security.
