Army putschists in the West African nation of Guinea said Sunday that they had captured President Alpha Conde and dissolved the government, in a video sent to AFP. 

But the situation on the ground remained unclear as Conde’s government also released a statement saying that an attack on the presidential palace by Special Forces had been “repulsed”. 

Guinea — one of the world’s poorest countries despite boasting significant mineral resources — has long been beset by political instability.
