Political/military situation

The UK Foreign Office currently recommends not travelling to about 3/4 of the country - northern sectors. Has anyone been in that part of Niger recently? Or do you have reliable information about what's going on there? Are US and UK troops carrying out some fiendish operation they don't want anyone to see? Are there bandits all over the place? Popular uprising? What's up in northern Niger?

Would like to know as well.

Anybody were recently in Agadez? Is it possible and relatively safe to travel there from Niamey using bus?

Are travel permits necessary to go there as I found in some www sites?
