    BREAKING: Military takes over power, seizes national radio station



    The military in Gabon on Monday claimed it has seized power from the President Ali Bongo-led government in the country.


    The BBC reports that soldiers in the West African country said they launched a coup to restore democracy.


    They took control of the national radio station in the early hours of Monday to read a short statement announcing a “National Restoration Council”.


    President Bongo, who took over power in 2009, reportedly suffered a stroke in October and received treatment in Morocco.


    Bongo sought to put an end to the rumours about his health with a New Year message in which he said he was feeling fine.


    Soldiers said they had been disappointed by the message, calling it “a pitiful sight” and a “relentless attempt to cling onto power.”
