Mutineers may hold Niger government: French source

Mutinous soldiers could be holding Niger's President Mamadou Tandja and other members of the government, a French diplomatic source said on Thursday.

"There is still some confusion but it seems that President Tandja and his ministers are in the hands of mutinous soldiers, that they are being held," the source said.

The source said a meeting of military chiefs appeared to be under way, and that mutinous soldiers had attacked the presidential palace after a cabinet meeting.
