U.S. Reports Possible Coup Attempt Around Dec 24 in Equatorial Guinea

The U.S. Embassy in Malabo just disclosed an attempted coup may have happened on or about December 24 in Equatorial Guinea. All citizens should expect high alert, and that borders could be closed at any time.

There is no reason to believe that U.S. citizens are being specifically targeted; however, U.S. citizens should expect additional police and military checkpoints, additional security, and possible travel restrictions throughout the country.
