France24 - No. 2 junta leader under interrogation in Niamey
AFP - Niger's number two junta leader, Colonel Abdoulaye Badie, is under arrest at military headquarters in Niamey, a military source said on Thursday.
   
"Colonel Badie was arrested yesterday afternoon and is under detention in military headquarters in Niamey," the military source said.
   
"He is being interrogated," the source added, without explaining the reasons for the arrest.
   
Badie was permanent secretary to the junta under General Salou Djibo, leader of the coup which overthrew Niger's president Mamadou Tandja in February. He also served as chief military quartermaster.
