Danish journalists wounded in knife attack in Gabon capital
- Two Danish reporters for National Geographic were wounded after a Nigerien national living in Gabon attacked them with a knife in Libreville.
- The attacker told police the assault was in retribution for the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, although it was unclear if the Danes were mistaken for Americans.
- The attack was reportedly the first of its kind in Gabon, a Christian-majority country with peaceful interfaith relations.
