Niger Coup Leaders Accuse France of Destabilizing Country as ECOWAS Summit Kicks Off

Niger’s new military leaders are accusing France of trying to destabilize the country by releasing captured terrorists and breaching its airspace. France has denied the claims. This comes as ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, is holding an emergency summit today. ECOWAS has threatened to use military force to remove Niger’s military leaders who seized power in a coup two weeks ago.
