Nigerien President Mahamadou Issoufou on Tuesday asked France to increase its military support in the fight against Islamic extremism in the Lake Chad Basin. But experts say the resources of France and other Western countries contributing to the global fight against terror are starting to stretch thin.
“We want a strengthening of this operation across the Sahel, including to address the threats we face with Boko Haram,” Issoufou said during an official visit to France.
