Police disperse opposition protest in GUINEA Conakry



Guinean riot police fired tear gas to disperse opposition activists protesting the Supreme Court's confirmation that the ruling party won the country's divisive elections. Police Lieutenant Facinet Kouyate told The Associated Press that police on Friday night responded to stone-throwing demonstrators protesting the court's decision that President Alpha Conde's party won 53 of 114 parliamentary seats.
The clashes occurred in the opposition stronghold in Conakry's Hamdallaye neighborhood. Opposition leader Cellou Dalein Diallo, whose party won 37 seats, said government opponents will determine new strategies.
The Sept. 28 poll was the first time in more than a decade that Guineans voted in a legislative election. Disputes over the elections organization led to deadly demonstrations before the polls.
