Guinea’s Special Forces staged a plot on Sunday to arrest President Alpha Conte.

The leaders of the plot announced a curfew order throughout Guinea “until further notice,” as well as to replace the military rulers of the regions.

In a video clip sent to Agence France-Presse, a uniformed officer surrounded by several soldiers armed with guns said: “After the arrest of the president, we have made a decision to dissolve the constitution.”

The official added that Guinea’s airspace and territory had been closed and the government disbanded.
