Teodoro Obiang Nguema, leader of oil-rich Equatorial Guinea for 36 years, has been re-elected with 94% of the vote, according to official results.

He faced six opponents but the main opposition parties boycotted the poll.

The 73-year-old president came to power after overthrowing his uncle in a coup.

Equatorial Guinea has a small population and is one of Africa’s largest oil producers.

Most people live in poverty, it has a poor human rights record and is ranked as one of the most corrupt countries in the world. (BBC)
