Guinea temporarily frees jailed opposition leaders

Court releases 10 opposition leaders for part in anti-government protests.

    A Guinean court has agreed to temporarily release a group of opposition leaders from jail as they wait for the start of their appeal.

    They were arrested for staging protests against President Alpha Conde, whom they believe is planning on running for a third term.

    Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets since mid-October over suspicions that Conde is planning to change the constitution to extend his rule.
