Niger or the Niger (/niːˈʒɛər/ or /ˈnaɪdʒər/ ( listen); French: [niʒɛʁ]), officially the Republic of the Niger, is a landlocked country in Western Africa named after the Niger River. Niger is bordered by Libya to the northeast, Chad to the east, Nigeria and Benin to the south, Burkina Faso and Mali to the west, and Algeria to the northwest.
