Six French vacationers and their Nigerien tour information and driver have been killed by gunmen in Niger on Sunday, AFP reported, citing a neighborhood governor.
The attackers on bikes struck in Niger’s Kouré space, the company quoted the governor of Tillaberi, Tidjani Ibrahim Katiella, as saying.
The French Foreign Ministry warns on its web site the “terrorist threat is high” in Niger, particularly outdoors the capital.
The Kouré space is residence to the final herds of giraffe in West Africa, AFP added.
An official within the workplace of French President Emmanuel Macron stated they might not instantly verify the report.
