Ali Bongo (good at contortionism)

As the world's focus is on Afghanistan, another election has taken place and this too seems to be mired in fraud accusations.

In Gabon, Ali Ben Bongo has won an election - allegedly with the support for the French to help rig the poll. Mr Bongo's father, Omar, ruled the former French colony for more than four decades.

Now President Sarkozy has come down behind the new President Bongo sending a letter of congratulations - a letter which President Bongo is now using to authenticate his victory.
