Guinean Army Deployed; U.S. Urges Calm After Clashes

Guinea’s authorities deployed army and police forces across the country as the U.S. urged political leaders to calm their supporters amid violence sparked by the disputed outcome of a runoff presidential election.

At least seven people have died in clashes that began when Alpha Conde was declared the winner of the Nov. 7 vote, Agence France-Presse reported today, without citing anyone. Conde’s rival in the election, former Prime Minister Cello Dalein Diallo, has contested the results.
