Army Base Attacked, Colonel Killed Ahead Polls In Guinea

Security has paralyzed activities in Guinea in its final hours of a feverish election campaign on Friday after a high-ranking official was killed in a military camp east of the capital.
“Armed men opened fire inside the Samoreyah military camp in Kindia, fatally wounding Colonel Mamady Condé,” said Defense Ministry spokesman Aladji Cellou on his Facebook page.
Colonel Condé was the commander of the camp’s battalion of commandos, where the Guinean peacekeepers deployed in Kidal, northeastern Mali, are based.
This is the day 82-year president Alpha Condé was scheduled to travel to the outskirts of the capital for a final campaign meeting before Sunday’s presidential election.
