Borders Closed In a statement on Thursday the junta

the junta said it had resumed domestic flights and restored several state institutions, including the Constitutional Court.
However, land and air borders remain closed.
On Thursday, trucks, cars and motorbikes were stuck in long queues at Gabon’s border with southern Cameroon, a Reuters journalist said. At the intersection in Kye-Ossi, some people hung laundry between vehicles as they waited.
“Living in our truck is a bit difficult, we sleep outside,” said Issa Soumaila, a driver from Chad, standing next to a truck filled with wooden planks.
The events in Gabon come after recent coups in Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Chad and Niger, which erased democratic progress since the 1990s and raised concerns among foreign powers with regional strategic interests. The coup also demonstrated the limited influence of African countries after the military took power.
ECOWAS threatened military intervention in Niger after the coup there on July 26 and imposed sanctions, but the junta has not stepped down.

Military leaders in other countries have also resisted international pressure to restore civilian rule.

They managed to hold on to power and some even won the support of the people.
Hundreds of people took to the streets in the capital Libreville to celebrate Wednesday’s coup in Gabon. The city was quieter on Thursday as people return to work. Although major intersections and highways were guarded by security forces.
Bongo’s popularity has waned amid accusations of corruption, rigged elections and a failure to spend more of Gabon’s oil and mineral wealth on the country’s poor. He took power in 2009 after the death of his father, Omar, who had ruled since 1967.
France, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have all expressed concern about the coup. But they have not made any direct calls for Bongo’s return.
The European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said the election was full of irregularities, adding that the EU rejected a violent seizure of power.
The lack of international observers, the suspension of some foreign broadcasts, and the authorities’ decision to cut internet services and impose a curfew after the election raised concerns about election transparency.
