Calm after coup in Niger

Niger's capital is calm, a day after troops ousted President Mamadou Tandja.



    The streets of Niamey, Niger's capital city, are reported to be calm, a day after a military coup deposed the president.

    The West African nations' new military rulers have promised early elections and a return to democracy.

    The takeover has been widely condemned by other African states.
