Gabon mulls amnesty
LIBREVILLE - Gabon is considering an amnesty for people involved in last year's deadly postelectoral violence, Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze Ngondet said yesterday. President Ali Bongo's re-election in August 2016, by just a few thousand votes, led opposition leader Jean Ping to accuse the administration of electoral fraud. Violence broke out days after the vote, and opposition figures say more than 50 people were killed in clashes. The official toll was only three dead.
