Private Radio Stations Attacked as Guinea Elections Loom

Not such a good sign


CONAKRY, Guinea — A journalists' association in Guinea says that two privately-owned radio stations have been attacked, as political tensions rise before Guinea's legislative elections on May 12.

The Union of Free Radio and Television of Guinea said Monday that the Renaissance FM station was attacked on Sunday and the Planet FM radio station was shot at on Friday when Faya Millimo, leader of the opposition Liberal Bloc, was being interviewed at the station.
