Earlier in the day, the Guinee News website reported that the rebels had detained President Alpha Conde. Meanwhile, the coup leader, Mamady Doumbouya, announced the dissolution of the government as well as abrogation of the constitution and closure of the border.

“I am personally following the situation in Guinea very closely. I strongly condemn any takeover of the government by force of the gun and call for the immediate release of President Alpha Conde,” Guterres tweeted.
