GAMBIA LEADER YAHYA JAMMEH REJECTS ELECTION RESULT
Gambian leader Yahya Jammeh has rejected the result of the presidential election held earlier this month, a week after admitting defeat.
Mr Jammeh cited "abnormalities" in the vote and called for fresh elections.
Mr Jammeh, who took power in a coup in 1994, was defeated by Adama Barrow, who won more than 43% of the vote.
Mr Barrow accused the incumbent of damaging democracy by refusing to accept the result. His transition team said the president-elect was safe.
