[Guinean news] Conde blames Senegal and Gambia for attack
Guinean president Alpha Conde accused the Senegalese and Gambian governments of having "complicity" with those who launched attacks on his residence in July. In a radio interview, Conde said of the assaults that "all was planned in Dakar." The allegations were vehemently denied by a spokesperson for the Senegalese presidency. Some have claimed that the accusations are eerily reminiscent of the "permanent plot" state of paranoia created during the regime of Sekou Toure.
