Portugal Calls for End to Violence in Guinea Bissau After Unrest

The Portuguese government called for an end to violence in Guinea Bissau following another case of military unrest in the West African country.

“The Portuguese government views with concern the situation in Guinea Bissau,” Portugal’s Foreign Ministry said in an e-mailed statement yesterday evening. “There is no military solution to the problems that Guinea Bissau is confronted with,” it said.

At least seven people were killed on Oct. 21 after gunmen raided an army barrack in Guinea Bissau, a former Portuguese colony, AFP reported on Sunday.
