A huge funeral procession accompanied the bodies of the four protesters killed by state security forces on September 27. The government held the bodies for three weeks after their deaths claiming it needed more time to complete the investigation. Actually, the reason the bodies were held so long is that the government was covering up evidence that some of the victims had been shot with fire arms.
The burial site was in Bambeto, a neighborhood in Conakry. After the September 27 opposition march, Bambeto was besieged by state security forces and state-sponsored paramilitaries, known as Donzos, who invaded homes, stole money and valuables, and injured several residents.
