In Guinea, thousands of people demonstrated in the streets of several cities on Monday. It is one of the biggest demonstrations in recent weeks in this West African country.
At least twelve people were reportedly injured in the eastern city of Kankan, where protesters clashed with supporters of President Alpha Condé. In the capital, Conakry, many demonstrators were dressed in red to support the opposition.
Since October, Guinea has been the scene of a series of demonstrations organized by the opposition in response to President Alpha Condé’s desire to change the constitution.
The opposition and Guinean civil society are concerned about the desire of Mr. Condé, 81, to run for a third term.
