Coup Update

So here's what I know.  Gunfire was audible from the Sahel Academy (SIM's boarding school in Niamey) campus, but it was short-lived.  (Former) President Tandja was removed from the presidential palace by "renegade soldiers in armored vehicles" to a military base on the outskirts of Niamey . . . his current whereabouts are unknown, according to multiple reports.
