Guinea's Military Bans Demonstrations

Ad Feedback

In West Africa, deadly violence has forced Guinea's military to ban all public gatherings and demonstrations for two days of mourning.
    
However, some say the military is to blame after soldiers fired on a pro-democracy rally at a stadium.

Angry demonstrators took to the streets, looting shops and buildings.
    
A human rights group says 157 people were killed in the incident and more than 1,200 were wounded.
    
But the government maintains that only 57 died and most of them were trampled.

Now an investigation is being launched into who gave the order for soldiers to fire on demonstrators in the capital.
