Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Guinea’s security forces arrested 322 people this week during protests held by opposition political parties, said Mohamed Said Haidara, public prosecutor for the court at Dixinn, a suburb of Conakry, the capital.
The people face charges of destruction of public and private buildings, violence, robbery and homicide, Haidara said on state-owned radio today. Court hearings will begin tomorrow, he said. Two demonstrators were killed and 25 officers were injured during the protests, Haidara said.
