Opposition candidate Jean Ping said on Sunday that results showed him winning Gabon's presidential election, ahead of incumbent President Omar Bongo, whose family has ruled the tiny, oil-producing nation for half a century.

"As I speak to you, the trends indicate we're the winner of this important presidential election," Ping told a crowd of supporters gathered at his campaign headquarters in the capital Libreville.
