BREAKING: Soldiers seize power in Guinea after stunning coup

Soldiers who marched on Guinea’s capital on Sunday said in a short broadcast on state television that they have dissolved the constitution and the government in the West African state.

There’s however chaos in the West African nation as the defence ministry said an attack on the presidential palace by mutinous forces had been put down.

Heavy gunfire had broken out near the presidential palace in Conakry on Sunday morning, with several sources saying an elite national army unit led by a former French legionnaire, Mamady Doumbouya, was behind the unrest.

An unidentified soldier, draped in Guinea’s national flag and surrounded by eight other armed soldiers, said in the broadcast that they planned to form a transitional government and would give further details later.

The soldier spoke after videos shared on social media showed President Alpha Conde surrounded in a room by army special forces.
