Niger – Arlit: Three dead among police officers missing in the desert

Several policemen (about ten) were missing for two days between Assamaka and Arlit in northern Niger. They were on their way to make a shift.

According to a security source, after the search operations, eight officers were rescued but three more were found dead on Thursday, August 3.

A sandstorm in the desert would be at the origin of the tragedy, adds the same source.
