Soldiers Seize Power In Guinea, Dissolves Constitution, President Kidnapped

 Guinea’s special forces claimed Sunday to have captured President Alpha Conde and “dissolved” the country’s institutions, in a video sent to an AFP correspondent.

The fate of Guinea's President Alpha Condé is unclear after an unverified video showed him in the hands of soldiers, who said they had seized power.

They appeared on national TV claiming to have dissolved the government.

This follows hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry.

The West African country of Guinea is rich in natural resources but years of unrest makes them one of
the world's poorest countries.

The TV address featured nine unnamed soldiers, several draped in the red, gold and green national flag, who said they had taken over because of rampant corruption, mismanagement and poverty.

Calling themselves the National Committee for Reconciliation and Development, they said the constitution had been dissolved and that there would be consultations to create a new, more inclusive one.

Numerous reports say the coup was led by an elite unit headed by a former French legionnaire, Lt Col Mamady Doumbouya.

In one video, which the BBC has not been able to verify, soldiers ask President Condé, 83, to confirm he is unharmed but he refuses to respond.

Sitting barefoot on a sofa wearing jeans and a printed shirt, he does not have any visible injuries.
