Gabon Coup Attempt: Chief rebel arrested and two Army Rebels Killed
The chief military rebel who led a failed coup in Gabon has been arrested and two of his commands killed after they stormed a public radio station, the country’s government says.
They were shot dead after security officers stormed the national radio building which they had taken over. Three others are under arrest.
In a statement read out by a soldier, flanked by two others holding guns, they said the military had seized power from the government and called on people to “rise up”.
