Benin – Benin News Today
Benin, formally the Republic of Benin, is a West African country. It borders Togo to the west, Nigeria to the east and Burkina Faso and Niger to the north; its southerly coastline leads to the Bay of Benin. It has an area of just over 110,000 square kilometres and a population of almost 8,500,000. Its capital is the city Yoruba founded from Porto Novo, but the headquarters of the government is the city Fon de Cotonou. About half the population lives below the international poverty line of US$1.25 per day.
