Guinea: 1 dead, more than 100 injured in protests
The Associated Press
Alpha Amadou Bah said Thursday that his brother, Teela, 22, was stabbed to death in the protests against President Alpha Conde's preparations for legislative elections in May.
State television reported that 130 people were injured in the demonstrations, including more than more than 60 security officials. Officials say security forces fired tear gas at protesters after opposition marchers started throwing stones in Guinea's capital.
Guinea's opposition said that it has withdrawn from the upcoming legislative election set for May 12 because it is unhappy with election preparations.
Conde was elected in 2010, but the vote for the legislature has been delayed.
