Guinea Coup Leaders Free Dozens of Political Prisoners

Coup leaders in Guinea have released about 80 political prisoners who had been detained under the ousted President Alpha Condé.
Around 400 people had been imprisoned during protests in 2020.

There are indications that leaders of the West African regional body Ecowas will impose sanctions on Guinea when they meet virtually later on Wednesday.

An elite army unit under the command of Lt Col Mamady Doumbouya seized power on Sunday. They detained Condé, 83, and accused him of rampant corruption, human rights abuses and mismanagement.
His whereabouts remain unknown, although the coup leaders have said he is safe.
