In the Gambia, a coup is brewing
In the Gambia, the outgoing President Yahya Jammeh refused to resign after the elections in December to compete with Adam barrow, who had come to power on Thursday.

Troops from several West African countries were ready to enter the Gambia if the Jamma to midnight will not resign, said Colonel Seydou Moro from the economic community of West African countries (ECOWAS). "All the troops are already in place," said Moreau. "If no decision is reached by midnight, we will take action."

Jammeh is in power in Gambia since the military coup that happened in 1994 to losses in the December 1 vote. His opponent won 45% of votes. Hundreds of tourists left the Gambia on Wednesday, as the risk of violence increased. The Ministry of foreign Affairs of great Britain has also recommended travelers to postpone the trip to Gambia. "The potential for military intervention and civil unrest is high and may lead to the closure of the international airport of Banjul on a short period of time".

"The deployment of troops can prevent military action or a breakdown of law and order that may arise as a result of the current political impasse in the Gambia," the statement said. The country declared a state of emergency. After the election, Jammeh initially admitted defeat and said he will retire - but in just over a week, he changed his mind. "I declare to you, the gambians do, my total rejection of the election results and thereby annulling the elections in full," said Jammeh in a speech on 9 December.

Since then, attempts by African leaders and the United States to convince Jammeh to leave his post was not successful. On Tuesday, the outgoing President declared a state of emergency in the country. Speaking in a television statement, Jammeh also said that he filed a petition in the Supreme court of the Gambia to barrow was sworn in. Barrow currently waiting in neighbouring Senegal when he gets the presidency.
