Guinean military dissolves the government after President's death

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

Hours after the death of the President in the West African state of Guinea, a statement from the military said it was dissolving the government. An army officer went on radio and television to say the army had taken over, and a body called the National Council for Development and Democracy had been set up to root out corruption.
