Gabon: Entire Country's Internet Reportedly Shut Down During Coup Attempt
Gabon's internet was entirely shut down amid an attempted coup on Monday in the country, Gizmodo reports, noting that the coup was "put down" quickly. The coup was announced via radio broadcast:

"The attempted coup started around 4:30am local time when rebels, unhappy with President Ali Bongo and his family’s rule of Gabon for the past 50 years, took control of the country’s state radio broadcaster. The broadcast, while primarily delivered via radio, was also published on social media. 'If you are eating, stop; if you are having a drink, stop; if you are sleeping, wake up. Wake up your neighbors,' the radio message said in the early morning hours."

The New York Times noted that "[t]he plotters appeared to be young, low-ranking officers who did not seem to have a meticulous plan...Gabon has been relatively stable in recent decades, but analysts said the coup attempt was a sign of underlying unrest."
