Guinea Opposition Vows More Protests Unless President Backs Down

Guinea’s opposition leader pledged to continue the protests in which at least four people have been killed unless President Alpha Conde allows prompt local elections. Cellou Dalien Diallo said Conde had broken a 2013 U.N.-brokered deal with the opposition to organize long-overdue municipal polls before a presidential vote set for October. The opposition accuses Conde of packing local authorities with his supporters after the five-year mandate of elected officials expired in 2010.
