Assignment - Guinea on the Brink
In a hard hitting programme Mark Doyle reports from Guinea in West Africa on the events of 28 September when government troops crushed an opposition rally in the centre of the capital, Conakry. Human rights groups say more than 150 may well have been killed - and that the soldiers attempted a cover up by removing bodies. The military government says 57 people were killed and puts part of the blame on the opposition parties for calling the demonstration. This programme contains some graphic descriptions of sexual violence.
