Photos: Unverified Video Shows Guinean Leader Alpha Conde Captured by Angry Troops

The fate of Guinea's President Alpha Condé is unclear after an unverified video showed him in the hands of soldiers, who said they had staged a coup.


However, the BBC reports that the country's defence minister has been quoted as saying the attempted takeover had been thwarted.

This follows hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry.

Soldiers are patrolling the otherwise deserted streets of the city centre.
