West Africa bloc says lifting Niger sanctions


West Africa's regional bloc ECOWAS on Saturday said it was lifting some of the sanctions imposed on Niger after last year's military coup.

A no-fly zone and border closures were among the sanctions being lifted "with immediate effect" on "humanitarian grounds", ECOWAS Commission chief Omar Alieu Touray said following an emergency summit in Abuja.
