Marc Ravalomanana seized by rebels
Sources say Marc Ravalomanana was taken by a rebel group and his family doesn't know where he is.
PRETORIA - Ousted Madagascar president Marc Ravalomanana, who ended five years of exile in South Africa, has been seized in the capital Antananarivo.
Ravalomanana went home aboard a private plane on Sunday night.
Sources say he was taken by a renegade group and his family have no idea of his whereabouts.
The ousted president's supporters were planning to announce his arrival at a press conference today.
Lawyers in Antananarivo say he was seized by men wearing balaclavas and military uniforms.
Police later arrived and used teargas to disperse angry and confused members of his family and supporters.
Ravalomanana appears to have jumped the gun on arrangements to facilitate his return after being ousted in a 2009 military coup.
