Niger's ousted prime minister hopes talks can end military coup


Niger's ousted prime minister on Saturday said that last week's military coup could be overturned by diplomacy.

Still, as the deadline loomed, Bazoum's Prime Minister Ouhoumoudou Mahamadou believed a last-minute intervention was possible, he said in an interview in Paris.

"We are still hopeful," said Mahamadou, who was in Rome when the coup occurred. "We expect President Bazoum to be released, reinstated, and all institutions that were allegedly dissolved to be restored in their entirety."
