Gambia president returns home after reports of attempted coup

BANJUL (Reuters) - Gambia's President Yahya Jammeh arrived back in Banjul on Wednesday, official sources said, one day after gunfire erupted around the presidential palace and the government denied media reports of a coup attempt.

Jammeh was in France or Dubai when violence broke out and he returned home via N'Djamena, where he told officials from Chad during a refueling stop on Tuesday evening that he planned to return home.
