10 hurt as Gabon police end rally for opposition figure
Ten people were injured in Libreville Tuesday as Gabon police broke up a rally organized to mark the return of opposition leader Jean Ping following a trip to Europe. The interior ministry said there were “no deaths and no injuries” during the demonstration, according to spokesman Jean-Eric Mangala. But an AFP journalist at the scene saw the injured receiving first aid at Ping’s headquarters where the former foreign minister had addressed thousands of his supporters following his return from a European tour. “Two of them suffered deep wounds and had to go for emergency treatment,” a volunteer doctor at the scene told AFP.
