In recent days, Guinea has become the scene of a coup. Rebels have taken over the country and captured the president. Despite everything, a first group of dozens of opponents of ousted Guinean President Alpha Condé, detained in the civil prison in Conakry, began to be released Tuesday evening, AFP correspondents noted.
A correspondent saw about twenty of them leave the prison, including the opponents Abdoulaye Bah and Etienne Soropogui, arrested in 2020 during the contesting of the re-election of Mr. Condé for a third term, or the vice -mayor of Matam, one of the communes of Conakry, Ismaël Condé. The soldiers who overthrew Mr. Condé on Sunday pledged to speed up the release of “political detainees” from his regime.
