[Guinean news] Reported attempt on life of naval chief

According to a Reuters report, the Guinean junta claims that a junior officer tried to kill the head of the Guinean navy.

The non-commissioned officer, who military sources said was disgruntled because he did not get a promotion after the coup, fired gunshots inside the Navy headquarters last week, smashing windows and hitting vehicles, officers said.

The report adds that many members of the CNDD junta received promotions and that this caused dissatisfaction among military members who were not promoted.
