US DEPLOYED TROOPS TO GABON JUST A FEW DAYS AHEAD OF MILITARY COUP ATTEMPT

On January 5th, the US deployed 80 heavily armed troops to Libreville, Gabon to be in position to assist US citizens, personnel and diplomatic facilities just a few days ahead of the military coup in the country, which took place on the morning of January 7th.

The reason given for the deployment was the fear of violent protests in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Elections in the country took place on December 30th, two years after they were supposed to take place, to elect a successor to President Joseph Kabila, who has assumed the seat for 18 years.
