Guinea military round up suspects

Guinean military "shoot dead" soldiers linked to assassination attempt on president.

    Exclusive footage obtained by Al Jazeera has revealed brutal treatment of military personel linked to a failed assassination attempt in the West African state of Guinea.

    Troops who took part in, or witnessed, the failed shooting of de facto president Captain Moussa Dadis Camara are allegedly being hunted down and some shot dead.

    Camara is undergoing treatment in a Moroccan hospital after he was shot in the head when he tried to arrest his head of security, Aboubacar Sidiki Diakite.

    The military president blamed Diakite for the massacre of more than 150 pro-democracy activists by the military in September.

    But many people believe Camara gave the military the order to fire, according to Al Jazeera's correspondent Yvonne Ndege.


    Ndege says there are signs of a violent cover-up, with elite units loyal to the president executing soldiers who witnessed the massacre.

    Meanwhile, Guinea's interim junta leader, General Sekouba Konate, has offered a reward for information leading to the arrest of Diakite.

    The general secretary of the junta presidency, Commandant Kélétigui Faro, told reporters the government was "searching everywhere in Conakry and even inside homes and within families for him".

    Faro's restrictions on movement in the capital has increased fear and tension among the civilian population around Conakry as armed soldiers man roadblocks around the city.
