South Africa and the Seychelles

South Africa, backed by the USA CIA, fails in an attempt to mount a coup against the government of the Seychelles. The country's leader, France Albert René, had persued a non-aligned foreign policy, wanted to have a nuclear free Indian Ocean, and objected to a USA satellite tracking station on the islands.

The USA vetoes a United Nations resolution condemning the attempt and naming South Africa as the agent.
