Large Libyan convoy arrives in Niger – sources
AGADEZ (Reuters) – A large convoy of Libyan armoured vehicles escorted by the Nigerian military arrived in the northern Niger desert town of Agadez late on Monday, a French military source and a Niger military source told Reuters.
The story described the convoy as being escorted by the “Nigerian Military” which is the military of Nigeria.
If you meant the military of the Niger Republic, you would say “Nigerien Military”.
Indeed. It was correct to begin with in most of our news feeds, but unfortunately was changed to Nigerian on one of our online news sites. We corrected it: GBU Editor
