At least 21 dead in post-election violence in Guinea

At least 21 people are now thought to have died in the unrest that has followed Guinea’s disputed election earlier this month.

Clashes between opposition supporters and security forces continued over the weekend, when the electoral commission confirmed President Alpha Condé’s controversial third term in office.

The opposition, which has declared itself the victor, says Conde broke the law when he changed the constitution in March to allow him to run again.

The United Nations and the African Union have sent mediators to Guinea to try to negotiate a solution.
