Niger – Attacks on Tchombangou and Zaroumdareye (2 January 2021)


France condemns in the strongest possible terms Saturday’s attacks on the Nigerien villages of Tchombangou and Zaroumdareye, which killed several dozen civilians and left many wounded. It offers its condolences to the victims’ families and to the people of Niger, and wishes those who were wounded a speedy recovery.

Those responsible for these despicable crimes must be brought to justice.

Together with all of its partners in the Coalition for the Sahel, France stands with Niger in the fight against terrorism.
