Gambia's longtime leader Yahya Jammeh said on Saturday he would step down from power, in a statement that he read on state television.

"I have decided today in good conscience to relinquish the mantle of leadership of this great nation," he said, wearing a white robe and looking tired. West African forces on Thursday invaded Gambia to force Jammeh, who lost an election in December, to relinquish power.
