Reports from Madagascar’s prosecution office say President Andry Rajoelina has survived an assassination attempt.

Several “foreigners and residents of Madagascar” have been detained as part of an investigation into the attempted assassination.

Two French nationals are among those detained in the probe.

French media report that the detained foreigners are Paul Rafanoharana, a Franco-Malagasy individual, and Philippe Francois, a Frenchman. According to the media outlet’s anonymous source, Rafanoharana was arrested in his home on Tuesday evening, while Francois was detained at Ivato Airport as he was about to leave for France.
