French media companies France 24 and RFI on Thursday said their broadcasts had been blocked in coup-hit Niger, denouncing the “decision made outside any legal or conventional framework”.

Broadcasts by the two companies had been inaccessible in Niger since Thursday afternoon, according to AFP journalists. Their signals were cut “on the instructions of the new military authorities,” a senior official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Last week’s coup has sparked anti-French protests in Niger, a former French colony.
