Gabonese security forces raid opposition HQ after disputed poll protests

Gabonese security forces have stormed the headquarters of the defeated presidential candidate, Jean Ping, as unrest continues after Saturday’s disputed election.

A government spokesman said security operations in the capital, Libreville have been targeting “armed criminals” who had earlier set the parliament on fire.

Mr Ping said two people had been killed in the assault on his headquarters after his supporters staged protests after official results gave President Ali Bongo a narrow victory.

Mr Ping was not in the building himself, has called for international assistance to protect the population.

The US and EU have also called for the results to be made public while UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon has urged calm.
