Niger coup leaders name transitional government

The military leadership in Niger has formed a new transitional government of 20 ministers, including five soldiers and five women.

According to state radio, the defence, sport and environment ministries, went to three generals close to the former President, Mamadou Tandja.

On Monday, the new military leader, Major Salou Djibo, promised to return Niger to democracy but set no date.

President Tandja was ousted last month, after he changed the constitution.

He had sought to remain in power beyond the end of his second term in office.

After the coup, the constitution was suspended and the cabinet dissolved.
