Gabon’s government thwarted an attempted military coup on Jan. 7, retaining control of the oil-rich nation on the west coast of Central Africa after two plotters were killed and other army officers were arrested, the government said.

Authorities regained control of state broadcasting offices and a major thoroughfare in the capital, Libreville, which were the only areas taken over by the officers, government spokesman Guy-Bertrand Mapangou told Radio France International.

He said five army officers who took over state radio were arrested. Two other coup plotters were killed when security forces took over and freed some hostages, according to a presidential statement reported by RFI.

Earlier on Jan. 7, a man who called himself Lt. Obiang Ondo Kelly, commander of the Republican Guard, read a statement saying the military had seized control of the government in order to “restore democracy.” He was flanked by two other soldiers holding weapons; all were dressed in camouflage uniforms and green berets.
