Protesters angered by Charlie Hebdo's latest Prophet Mohammed cartoon set fire Friday to the French cultural centre in Zinder, Niger's second biggest city, the head of the centre said.

An irate crowd of around 50 people smashed the centre's entrance door and set fire to the cafeteria, library and offices in spite of warning shots by two police guards, director Kaoumi Bawa told AFP.
