Two suspects killed, seven captured in failed Gabon coup attempt

LIBREVILLE (Reuters) - Gabon security forces killed two suspects in a failed coup attempt in Gabon on Monday and captured seven others, government spokesman Guy-Bertrand Mapangou told reporters.

The plotters seized control of the national radio station early on Monday morning and broadcast a message saying that President Ali Bongo was no longer fit for office.
