Coup in Gabon

Gabon’s junta says it has named General Brice Oligui Nguema as the leader of transition in the country following the military takeover there. Nguema is the former head of presidential guard.

The junta has also announced a nightly curfew until further notice. The coup happened after the Central African state's election body announced President Bongo had won a third term in a controversial vote. Officers claimed the election was not credible.
