Gambia: Coup Attempt Reportedly Foiled as Dictator Jammeh Speaks from Paris. Speech Transcript:

YAYAH JAMMEH’S SPEECH:

“My fellow Gambians:At 1 o’clock this morning, forces loyal to Lamin Sanneh, the disgraced former Commanding Officer of the State Guards, invaded The Gambia from Senegal in an attempt to overthrow its legitimate government. A group of armed men attacked the presidential palace and the Denton bridge military post before being quickly repelled. Four of the insurgents were killed and four more captured. Sanneh himself sustained injuries and may have died in the attack. No Gambian feels the aguish of this heinous plot more deeply than I, against whom Sanneh adds the sin of betraying a friend to the ignominy of high treason. Rest assured that the Enemies of the People have been defeated, and I will be returning from my state visit to France immediately in order to oversee an investigation and ensure that the perpetrators of this plot face stern justice.”
