Guinea will begin the trial of those accused of a 2009 massacre of opponents in the capital Conakry on Sept. 28, Justice and Human Rights Minister Alphonse Charles Wright said.

The start date, initially set for Sept. 26, was postponed to allow the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor to attend the opening of the trial, Wright said Friday on state-broadcaster Radio Television Guineenne.
