CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) — A security official in Guinea says 30 young opposition supporters have been detained for staging an unsanctioned protest against alleged irregularities during the country's legislative elections.
Alpha Barry, spokesman for a special elections-related security force, said the demonstrators gathered Tuesday to denounce the disappearance of a ballot box in Conakry's administrative district where the office of the president is located.
Tension has been mounting as Guinea awaits full results from the Sept. 28 poll, which was meant to complete the West African nation's transition to democratic rule.
The vote was delayed nearly two years because of disputes over how it would be conducted. The opposition has already demanded the results be thrown out, saying the process was marred by widespread fraud. Government officials have denied the fraud claims.
