Topic: Four killed in Niger anti-French riots, protests held in Pakistan, Algeria


By Abdoulaye Massalaki NIAMEY (Reuters) - Four people were killed in protests turned violent in Niger on Friday, after French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published more cartoon images of the Prophet Mohammad a week after Islamist gunmen shot dead 12 people at its offices in Paris. Protests also erupted in Pakistan and Algeria resulting in several injuries. Elsewhere, peaceful marches were held after Friday prayers in the capital cities of former French colonies Mali, Senegal and Mauritania. The Niger government said four were killed as police clashed with a crowd that attacked a French cultural center and set churches ablaze.
