Instability in Northern Niger

I’ve just returned from a mission to Agadez and Iferouane. We were concerned about the security situation there. There was a rebel attack on the military base at Iferouane in February 2007, with three soldiers killed. The attackers were apparently locals, ex-rebels and youth who are frustrated with the economic and political situation in northern Niger. They were quite restrained considering what could have happened and easily escaped.
Iferouane and the Reserve are not particular targets. The frustration is wide-spread and surges of discontent could happen anywhere in the north. A lot will depend on what happens with infrastructure development and political participation – particularly with the discovery of new uraninium deposits.
