Attack on residence of Guinea's President condemned

Alpha Condé

An attack on the residence of Guinea's President Alpha Condé has been condemned by the UN Secretary-General.

Condé is safe and it's unclear who was behind the attack, which reportedly included rockets and automatic weapons.

Ban Ki-moon said that no disagreements or differences justify a recourse to violence in a democracy.

He is calling on all Guineans to refrain from acts that would undermine the ongoing peaceful and democratic process in the country.

Conde was elected last November in Guinea’s first democratic election following a coup in 2008.
