Security Updates

Early on Sunday 5 September 2021, heavy gunfire and military deployments were reported in several areas of Conakry. Gunfire was reported in Coleah, Kaloum and Camayenne, with soldiers being deployed near the Palais du Peuple. Video circulating on social media showed military vehicles patrolling Conakry, with one military source disclosing that the only bridge connecting the mainland to the Kaloum neighbourhood, where the palace and most government ministries are located, had been sealed off. By mid-afternoon, when the shooting had stopped, residents of the capital city were venturing back onto the streets to celebrate the uprising’s apparent success, with some shouting that the country has been liberated.">Download PDF Report
