Niger insurgents kill at least 10 in motorbike raids

At least 10 people have been killed in an attack by suspected jihadists in western Niger, reports say.

Officials in Tillabéri province said the insurgents used motor bikes to carry out raids on two villages, Danga-Zouani and Korombara, and farmers in neighbouring fields.

Grain stores and huts were also reportedly burned down.

Tillaberi is located in the tri-border zone linking Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali, a notoriously insecure area.

Hundreds have been killed and thousands displaced across the Sahel region by the continuing attacks by jihadist factions.
