Bongo sworn in as Gabon president

Ali Bongo Ondimba, son of Gabon's late strongarm leader, was sworn in as president on Friday at a ceremony attended by other African leaders.

The Gabon opposition has said the August 30 election which brought Bongo to power was rigged and opposition leaders have said they will fight what they call attempts to smother democracy in the important oil-producing country.The presidents of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, Mali, Togo and Benin were among foreign leaders who watched as Bongo swore to "devote all my energy to the good of the Gabonese people."

The election followed the death in June of Bongo's father, Omar Bongo Ondimba, who had ruled the country for 41 years.
