Camara not expected this week in Guinea

afrol News, 7 December - Guinea's presidential spokesman has said Captain Moussa "Dadis" Camara wounded last week in the foiled coup, would not return to the country this week. Captain Camara who was shot by one of his aides last week, was airlifted to Morocco for emergency surgery.

Captain Camara suffered a head wound when the chief of his presidential guard shot him on Thursday.

Communications minister Idrissa Cherif said Captain Camara who is recovering from the surgery, his return is not expected soon.

Meanwhile, the West Africa block, ECOWAS, has called for Guinea to return to civilian rule as the junta's second in line commander assumed control of the country following an assassination attempt on its leader.

The statement issued by ECOWAS on Sunday called on the junta to put in place a transitional authority and to organise elections, in which no members of the junta will be allowed to run.

The junta seized power in a coup last December and the coup leaders promised to organise elections and hand over power to civilians within one year. In September, the presidential guard opened fire on unarmed demonstrators who had gathered to demand that Captain Camara step aside.

The army killed at least 157 people and the red beret-wearing soldiers then dragged dozens of women onto the stadium grass, gang-raping them in broad daylight, according to numerous witnesses and human rights groups.

A team of UN investigators has been in the capital Conakry to uncover what happened when soldiers opened fire in a stadium packed with protesters. Captain Camara has promised to cooperate fully with the UN inquiry team and met with the commission members shortly after their arrival in Conakry last week.

Arms embargoes and travel restrictions have been imposed against the junta by the European Union and West African alliance ECOWAS.

Captain Camara seized power in December last year, a day after the death of President Lansana Conte, who ruled the country for two decades.
