Internatio­nal pressure mounts on ruling junta

-

Internatio­nal pressure mounted Friday on the junta that seized power in Guinea after the African Union suspended the country and as a delegation of West African officials came to urge a return to democratic rule.

The African Union has suspended Guinea “from all AU activities and decision-making bodies,” the organizati­on announced. The suspension comes after military officers in Guinea overthrew President Alpha Condé on Sunday.

The 15-nation West African regional economic bloc, known as ECOWAS, had already suspended Guinea after the coup led by Col. Mamady Doumbouya.
