Guinea coup: Ecowas delegation wants assurances about Condé

Date

A delegation from the West African regional bloc Ecowas has had an initial meeting with members of the military junta in Guinea’s capital, Conakry.

The diplomats, including foreign ministers from Ghana, Burkina Faso and Togo, flew into the country following Sunday’s overthrow of President Alpha Condé.

In response, Ecowas condemned the coup and suspended Guinea from the organisation.

The Ecowas delegation will be looking for assurances that Mr Condé is in good health, pressing for his release from custody and asking for a timetable for the return of constitutional order, the BBC’s Alhassan Sillah reports from Conakry.
