Niger calls for international intervention in Libya
Issued on: Modified:
Niger is calling for Western intervention to eradicate a growing threat from radical Islamist fighters in Libya. Interior Minister Massoudou Hassoumi says the countries that overthrew Kadhafi must provide an "after-sales service". He told RFI that it would be legitimate for Nato countries to eradicate a "terrorist threat" in the south of Libya. Mark Schroeder, a security analyst at Stratfor, says that option is being debated in Western capitals.
