    Niger leader Mamadou Tandja 'held by soldiers'


    [​IMG]

    President Tandja was first voted into office in 1999


    Niger President Mamadou Tandja and his cabinet are being held by soldiers after gun battles in the capital, a government source has told the BBC.

    Gunfire broke out around the presidential palace at about 1300 (1200 GMT) and continued for 30 minutes, says the BBC's Idy Baraou in Niamey.

    Our correspondent says tanks have been firing and witnesses report seeing injured people being taken to hospital.

    Tensions have been growing in the uranium-rich nation since last year.

    Mr Tandja was widely criticised when he changed the constitution in August to allow him to stand for a third term.

    Long-term tensions

    An unnamed French official told AFP that a coup attempt was under way.

    "All I can say is that it would appear that Tandja is not in a good position," he told the news agency on condition of anonymity.

    Soldiers captured Mr Tandja while he was chairing his weekly cabinet meeting, the government source said.

    But Reuters news agency spoke to other people inside the palace who said things were "all right".

    "We can hear gunshots from time to time but... the president is in his office," a security source told Reuters by telephone.

    Our correspondent says sporadic shooting can still be heard.
    A witness told AFP that the bodies of three soldiers had been taken to a military mortuary.

    But the situation in Niamey remains unclear, with radio stations continuing their programmes as normal and apparently there has been no large-scale deployment of military personnel.

    The government and opposition have been holding on-off talks since December - mediated by the regional body Ecowas - to try to resolve the country's political crisis.

    Mr Tandja, a former army officer, was first voted into office in 1999 and was returned to power in an election in 2004.

    Niger has experienced long periods of military rule since independence from France in 1960.

    It is one of the world's poorest countries, but Mr Tandja's supporters argue that his decade in power has brought a measure of economic stability.

    Under his tenure, work has begun on the world's second-biggest uranium mine, and energy deals have been signed with Chinese firms.

    Huyu jamaa anastahili maana alijisahau. Franco Phone countries bwana! Ufaransa inachofanya inahakikisha kila Rais wa zilizokuwa koloni zake anakuwa recruited in France masonic lodges na baada ya hapo wanahakikisha wanamlea kiasi kwamba hata kama atawaua watu wake wote hawajari ili mradi tu anaonyesha mapenzi kwa Ufaransa.
    Rwanda walichoamua nakiunga mkono kabisa. Wafaransa wanaziharibu nci walizozitawala Afrika kwa kuweka marais wasiojari kabisa demokrasia.

    Museveni anawasiwasi kuwa amekalia kuti kavu ndio maana anataka kuharakisha East African Political Federation iwe kinga kwake dhidi ya mahasimu wake wanaonyemelea kumpindua hasa sasa baada ya ugunduzi wa mafuta [ the african Curse]; the curse that befalls all coutries that produce the black gold!! Now we in Tanzania are on the spotlight since we have uranium deposits which will soon be exploited and our leadership seems to be unstable; what has happened in Niger could easily befall us!!

    Military coup ousts Niger president

    A coup has taken place in Niger and the president has been captured after a gun battle in the capital, Niamey. In a television announcement, a spokesman for the plotters said Niger's constitution had been suspended and all state institutions dissolved.

    The country was now being led by a group called the Supreme Council for the Restoration of Democracy (CSRD), the spokesman said.

    President Mamadou Tandja is believed to be in captivity at a military barracks. Reports say government ministers are also being held. Making the announcement on television, the spokesman for the coup leaders, wearing a military uniform, was surrounded by a large group of soldiers.

    He called on the people of Niger to "remain calm and stay united around the ideals postulated by the CSRD", to "make Niger an example of democracy and good governance".

    "We call on national and international opinions to support us in our patriotic action to save Niger and its population from poverty, deception and corruption," he added.

    A newsreader on Niger television said the country's borders had been closed and a curfew was now in force.

    Tensions have been growing since last year in the uranium-rich nation.

    Mr Tandja was widely criticised when he changed the constitution in August to allow him to stand for a third term.

    Long-term tensions

    A BBC correspondent said earlier that tanks were firing and witnesses reported seeing injured people being taken to hospital

    An unnamed French official told AFP that the president had been seized.

    "All I can say is that it would appear that Tandja is not in a good position," he told the news agency on condition of anonymity.

    Soldiers captured Mr Tandja while he was chairing his weekly cabinet meeting, a government source told the BBC.

    AFP later reported an official as saying Mr Tandja was possibly being held at a military barracks about 20km (13 miles) west of Niamey.

    A witness told the news agency that the bodies of three soldiers had been taken to a military mortuary.

    The situation in Niamey remains unclear - there has apparently been no large-scale deployment of military personnel.

    The government and opposition have been holding on-off talks since December - mediated by the regional body Ecowas - to try to resolve the country's political crisis.

    Constructive engagement

    Ecowas has told the BBC that it is closely following developments in Niger.
    The organisation's political director, Abdel-Fatau Musah, said that, if needed, Ecowas would be in the country as quickly as it could to ensure order was maintained and constitutional order restored as soon as possible.

    Mr Musah said that while Ecowas would never recognise a military takeover, it would maintain a constructive engagement with those in authority in Niger.
    Mr Tandja, a former army officer, was first voted into office in 1999 and was returned to power in an election in 2004.

    Mwe !!! Mfano wa kuigwa na nani ??? Hivi wewe unaujua mtutu wa bunduki au unausikia tu ??? Usifanye mchezo na mapinduzi ya kijeshi. Kama umechoka amani basi hamia huko huko Niger au uende hapa jirani tu na kwetu uone madhara ya umwagaji damu. Nadhani wewe siyo m-TZ, labda unatokea huko huko wanakomwaga damu. Usituletee huo muflisi wako wa amani na siasa. KWENDA ZAKO HUKO.
