EU election mission in Gabon says finds anomalies in results

LIBREVILLE (Reuters) - A European Union mission to observe Gabon’s election said on Tuesday it had found anomalies in results from the southeast region of Haut-Ogooue where President Ali Bongo won 95.46 percent of the votes cast.

Bongo, whose family has ruled the Central African country for half a century, won the Aug. 27 election by fewer than 5,000 votes. The opposition says the election was stolen and that turnout from Haut-Ogooue had been inflated to give Bongo victory.
