Islamist militants set off two suicide bombings in Niger Thursday.
One targeted a uranium mine run by a French company.
The other hit a military base.
About 20 people were killed in addition to the bombers.
And Friday, French special forces helped Niger's military secure the military base, where it turns out two militants were still hiding in a dormitory.
They were shot dead in the operation.

He says the attacks were most likely a spill-over from the conflict in neighboring Mali.
