United States Soldiers
American Soldiers
Amry, Navy, Air Force, Marines

They probably used "Niger soldiers" for clarity. If they used "Nigerien soldiers," it honestly looks like they misspelled "Nigerian."

That's because it ends in an S you don't say US's soldiers, or United States's Soldiers, but you could say Niger's Soldiers.

Umm Niger and Nigeria are two seperate places

yes, and people from Niger are Nigerien and people from Nigeria are Nigerian.

You guys are completely missing the point, I am not laughing at the word, I am laughing at Yahoo for doing what looks intentional. Every other news site used Niger Military to describe the event, only Yahoo, and only on their front page did someone put Niger Soldiers.
