Nearly 70 dead in village attack in southwestern Niger

Aljazeera says At least 69 people, including a mayor, have been killed in an attack by gunmen in southwestern Niger, the government has confirmed.

The assault was the latest in Niger’s “tri-border” zone with Burkina Faso and Mali, a volatile area that has been the epicentre of a years-long conflict between state forces in the western portion of Africa’s Sahel region and armed groups linked to ISIL (ISIS) and al-Qaeda.

The gunmen ambushed a delegation led by the mayor of Banibangou on Tuesday about 50km (30 miles) from the town, in the western region of Tillaberi near the border with Mali.
