Video: Unrest over Guinea killings

Investigation promised after 157 reported deaths at rally in West African country.

    Guinea's government has promised to investigate why troops from the presidential guard opened fire during a protest, says the death toll is much lower.

    A human rights group says at least 157 people were killed at the opposition rally in the West African country on Monday. More than a thousand of others were reportedly injured.

    Witnesses say soldiers raped women and stabbed protesters with knives.

    Moussa Camara, the country's leader, was hailed as a hero when he took power in a military coup in December.

    But as Al Jazeera's Hazem Sika reports, the people's attitude towards him has now changed.
