Guinea Opposition Agrees to Meet With President Amid Protests

An opposition spokesman said on Tuesday that the head of Guinea's political opposition will meet with President Alpha Conde in an effort to ease tensions following weeks of violent clashes between protesters and security forces.
According to a senior government official, Conde issued a formal invitation to opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo, following protests in the West African nation's capital Conakry and several other towns on Monday over the timing of elections.
