If you don’t read French, after the video is an article (in English) that describes the attack that Millimono is recounting for the reporter. Further below are reports about death threats against journalists and Conde’s forces rampaging in the opposition stronghold of Bambeto.
The event that the opposition had scheduled for this Thursday, May 23 was finally able to go to completion. Involved? The violent repression with which the security forces were opposed.
In fact, when all was relatively well past Enco 5 roundabout Bambeto, things deteriorated a little later. Walkers, bound for the roundabout to the airport, crossed the tracks of the city. In fact, before them, they faced fierce resistance from security forces who improperly used tear gas. According to our reporters, once again, security forces were backed up by followers of Conde’s political party, the RPG, who threw stones at the opposition marchers. It also means that more tear gas projectiles were thrown at the opposition activists. Thus, the vehicle of the leader of the Union of Democratic Forces of Guinea (UFDG),Cellou Dalein Diallo was damaged. One of his guards was wounded in the body. The same fate befell the guard of Jean-Marc Telliano. Fode Mohamed Soumah of Citizen Generation (Geci) also received a shot in the shoulder. Sadly, an opposition activist, in the person of Thierno Moussa Diallo, aged 23, was fatally wounded by a shot with live ammunition – he died at the scene.
Before the fury of the combined forces and protesters against-the procession of the opposition leaders did not have the choice to return to the roundabout Bambeto. Thus, a colleague has declared we have seen Diallo’s vehicle, heading at full speed towards Kipé. Fearing for their lives, different leaders each have found shelter. While taking care not to reveal the secret in question.
