Niger’s military regime orders police to expel French envoy

Friday, 01 September 2023 | AP | Niamey (Niger)

Niger’s military junta has revoked the diplomatic immunity of France’s ambassador and ordered police to expel him from the country, according to a statement from the military regime.

The mutinous soldiers who ousted Niger’s president more than a month ago gave French Ambassador Sylvain Itte 48 hours to leave the country last week. The deadline expired on August 28 without France recalling Itte.

The French government says it doesn’t recognize the coup-plotters as the country’s legitimate leaders.
