Guinea's junta leader Capt Moussa "Dadis" Camara was attacked by soldiers from his own presidential guard on Thursday but he survived, his communication minister said.
The shooting came amid rumours of deep divisions within the army nearly three months after a military-led massacre of protesters at a peaceful rally. Mr Cherif said Capt Camara had left the country's main military barracks, from where he has been running the country since seizing power in a military-led coup 11 months ago. He headed downtown to a military camp housing hundreds of men under the control of Abubakar "Toumba" Diakite, the president's aide-de-camp. The shooting occurred inside the camp.
