US, Germany say Niger Expulsion Letters are Fake


German Ambassador, Olivier Schnakenberg, and the United States State Department have both confirmed that the letters ordering the expulsion of foreign ambassadors from Niger were not real, further stating that they had not received any official notification.

Over the past few hours, several letters appearing to be official statements from the Niger military junta ordered ambassadors from France, US, Germany, Nigeria, and Ivory Coast to leave the country. The Junta came out to confirm that only France’s ambassador has been ordered to leave and called the other documents fake as well.

What is strange is that the documents appear to have originated from the official Facebook page of General Abdourahamane Tchiani, leader of the Niger junta, but have since been deleted. Could these documents have been prematurely released?
