French broadcaster Radio France Internationale resumed FM broadcasts in Niger following a three-month suspension imposed by Niger authorities in March, according to news reports.

The station had been banned from the airwaves over a series of programs in support of RFI correspondent Moussa Kaka, who has been jailed in Niger since September 2007.
