At least one person shot dead in Guinea protest

CONAKRY (Reuters) - At least one person was shot dead and several were wounded in clashes between security forces and demonstrators after a protest by tens of thousands of opposition supporters in Guinea on Thursday, government and opposition figures said. Opposition parties accuse President Alpha Conde, who took office in 2010 following Guinea's first democratic transfer of power since independence in 1958, of trying to rig coming legislative elections in the world's largest bauxite exporter.
