14 dead as Niger clashes with convoy from Libya
NIAMEY (Reuters) – Niger’s army has clashed with a heavily armed convoy of vehicles that entered its territory from Libya, killing 13 in the convoy and suffering one casualty on its side, military sources in the West African country said on Wednesday.
The sources said Nigerien authorities took a further 13 prisoners after the incident, which took place on Sunday around the remote northern Nigerien mining town of Arlit just south of the border with Libya.
I think you mean just south of the border with ALGERIA. The Libyan border is 800 km to the northeast.
