Heavy gunfire has been reported in the heart of Conakry, the capital of Guinea, according to a Reuters witness and videos shared on social media.
A military source said on Sunday morning that the bridge connecting to the Kaloum neighbourhood, which houses most of the ministries and the presidential palace, had been sealed off and soldiers, some heavily armed, were posted around the palace.
A senior government official said President Alpha Conde was unharmed.
