Equatorial Guinea detains French military helicopter hours after France’s appeals court upholds guilty verdict for VP Mangue

Equatorial Guinea has detained a French military helicopter, with the vice president claiming it landed without authorization after violating the African state's airspace. France has denied any wrongdoing.

Vice President Teodoro Obiang Mangue said the aircraft was a “French military reconnaissance helicopter” which landed at Bata International Airport, despite having no authorization and allegedly breaching Equatorial Guinea’s airspace.

“This demonstrates once again the intention of France to destabilize the Republic of Equatorial Guinea,” Mangue tweeted on Thursday over the incident.
