The expulsion of Bazoum on July 26 — the seventh military coup in West and Central Africa in less than three years — has shocked the continent.

On Sunday, coup sympathizers invaded the French embassy in Niamey, the capital of Niger, and burnt French flags. Following the incident, French President Emmanuel Macron promised a “swift and uncompromising response” to any attempts to harm French interests in Niger.
