Video: Guinea accused of cover-up

Families believe the military has disposed of bodies after crackdown on protesters.

    Almost a month has passed since presidential guard troops opened fire on an opposition rally in Guinea, killing scores.

    But the relatives of the victims have still not been able to bury their loved ones.

    The military government says soldiers killed 56 people during the protest, while the United Nations has said the real toll was more than 150.
