[Guinean news] 'Coup plotters' arrested; Dadis won't stand in elections

Two junior army officers were arrested this week on suspicion of plotting a coup d'Etat against the country's military head of state Capt. Moussa Dadis Camara. Dadis was already at the airport when his trip to Libya was cancelled, reports the BBC. The broadcaster noted an increase in troop movements in Conakry in recent days.

Agence France Presse noted that: The International Crisis Group has warned that disagreements within the Guinean junta itself could endanger the transition to elections planned for later this year.

Human Rights Watch has similar concerns.

Earlier this week, Capt. Camara said he would not stand in presidential elections due this December.
