- Nigeriens gathered near France’s military base in Niamey to celebrate the departure of the French ambassador.
- This comes a month after the military junta ordered him to leave.
However, anti-French activists say that the battle is not yet over. They are calling for the complete withdrawal of French troops from Niger and say that they will continue to fight until the last French soldier leaves the country.
France has kept soldiers in Niger as part of an anti-jihadist deployment in the region.
However, the new regime says that it is planning its future relations with Paris, the form of which will be dictated by the people of Niger.
