Gabon Presidency Accuses Ping’s Camp of ‘Coordinated Attacks’

The office of Gabon’s President Ali Bongo on Thursday accused the camp of his rival in the just-concluded disputed election, Jean Ping, of planning “coordinated attacks on symbols of the state”.
This followed the eruption of violence in the Gabonese capital, Libreville, between opposition supporters and security forces after Bongo was declared winner of Saturday's  Presidential election.
According to reports, three people
were apparently shot dead by security forces and many more wounded during the fracas.
Responding, the President's office released a statement saying, “These were not protests but coordinated acts intended to incite fear amongst the citizens who voted the ‘wrong’ way.”
According to the statement, in response to this, security forces had encircled Ping’s headquarters and clashed with his supporters, resulting in one death.
