In The Land Of Niger
Niger in Africa is one of the world’s largest producers of uranium, and one of its biggest customers is France’s state-owned nuclear company Areva. France depends on nuclear power for three-quarters of its electricity, making it more reliant on uranium than any other country on earth. Now Niger’s government is demanding a better deal from Paris. The former French colony remains one of the poorest countries on earth. More than 60 percent of its 17 million people survive on less than $1 a day.
