At Least Least Six Shot in Anti-Government Protests in Guinea

At least six people were shot and wounded in Guinea's capital on Monday, the government said, during protests against the timing of elections and what opposition figures say is targeted violence against them. Protesters barricaded streets and burned tyres overnight in neighborhoods of the capital, Conakry, that are considered opposition strongholds. Security forces wearing shields and helmets moved in to clear the streets, firing teargas as protesters threw stones.
