Gabon’s foreign minister dies of heart attack

Gabon’s Foreign Minister Michael Moussa Adamo has died of a heart attack.

President Ali Bongo made the announcement in a statement on Friday.

“He was a very great diplomat, a true statesman. For me, he was first of all a friend, loyal and faithful, whom I could always count on,” said Bongo on Twitter.

Government sources said the minister was in a council of ministers meeting when he suffered the cardiac attack.
