Niger's Tillabéri region lies within the so-called tri-border area between Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso, which has been plagued by jihadist attacks for many years.

Niger village attacks: Death toll rises to 100

Published  January 4/2021

Niger's prime minister says 100 people are now known to have been killed in Saturday's attacks by suspected jihadists on two villages.

Brigi Rafini said 70 people were killed in the village of Tchombangou and 30 others in Zaroumdareye - both near Niger's border with Mali. It was one of the deadliest days in living memory, as Niger grapples with ethnic violence and Islamist militancy. No group has said it carried out the attacks. According to local mayor Almou Hassane, those responsible travelled on "about 100 motorcycles," AFP news agency reports. They split into two groups and carried out the attacks simultaneously.
