Guinea Junta Bans Protests After Announcing Transition Timeline

  • Military rulers says will take 3 years to return to democracy
  • Opposition groups threaten to continue with protests

Guinea’s military rulers banned all protests in the West African nation, days after announcing a three-year transition to democracy.

Opposition political and civil-society groups in the world’s top exporter of bauxite have rejected the timeline, saying that it was adopted without consultation and say they will continue with demonstrations.
