Soldiers overthrow president Alpha Conde, arrest him (photos)



President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, has been overthrown in a Military Coup.

Heavy Gunfire was heard on Sunday morning at the Presidential Palace in Guinea’s capital, Conakry.

Reliable sources reveal that an elite national army unit led by a former French legionnaire, Mamady Doumbouya, was behind the unrest.

However, images emerging from the Presidential palace indicate that Mr. Conde has been overthrown and has possibly been placed on house arrest.

The 83 year old dictator was seen seated clad in a shirt and jeans with some buttons undone. He appeared visibly miffed and unhappy about the situation.

Conde won a controversial third term in October after changing the constitution to allow him to stand again despite violent protests from the opposition.
