One dead in Guinea as sweeping anti-govt rally starts

Conakry: One man was shot and killed in Guinea’s capital Conakry on Monday at the start of open-ended protests against President Alpha Conde.
The West African country has been wracked by demonstrations since mid-October over concerns Conde intends to use a planned constitutional reform to extend his mandate.
At least 20 civilians and one gendarme have been killed since the start of protests, which have drawn hundreds of thousands of people while scores have been arrested. Scuffles broke out on Monday between young people and the police, an AFP journalist said.
A student Elhadj Mamadou Sow, 21, was killed in the unrest, according to his uncle, who declined to be named. (AFP)
