Two Guinean ministers quit government

CONAKRY — Two Guinean opposition ministers have resigned from President Alpha Conde’s government after their party decided to break ties with the ruling party following a violent crackdown of opposition protest.

Report by Reuters
The mineral-rich West African nation has struggled to complete a transition to civilian rule since 2010 because the final step in the process — parliamentary elections — has been repeatedly delayed by disputes between rival political camps.

 
Conde’s opponents question his will to hold genuinely free elections and have taken to the streets in a series of protests which have triggered violent clashes with security forces.

 
The latest protest on Monday saw the arrest of over 100 opposition demonstrators in the world’s biggest bauxite exporter.
