Niger's coup leader General Tchiani: The ex-UN peacekeeper who seized power

Some analysts have wondered whether the overthrow of Mr Mohamed Bazoum, who is from the minority Diffa Arab community, might open up ethnic tensions in Niger. However, a strong sense of cross-cultural cohesion and national identity has always been a distinctive strength of modern Niger.

A former Tuareg rebel and senior minister, Rhissa ag Boula, has now launched a "Council of Resistance" to restore Mr Bazoum to office, and is presenting this in firmly national terms. And so far there is no sign of the junta venturing down a divisive sectarian path.
