Coup In Guinea As Army Captures President Conde

A Coup d'état has been reported in the west African nation of Guinea as Army said that they had captured President Alpha Conde and dissolved the government. This is per a video sent to AFP.

But the situation on the ground remained unclear as  Conde's government also released a statement saying that an attack on the presidential palace by special forces had been "repulsed".

Conde has been President of Guinea since December 2010.

Meanwhile, videos circulated on social media showed Conde being detained by army special forces on Sunday.

The videos, which AllNews could not immediately verify, were posted following hours of heavy gunfire around the presidential palace in Conakry.
