Guinea has been suspended from the West African regional bloc Ecowas following the coup that overthrew President Alpha Condé on Sunday.

Burkina Faso’s Foreign Minister Alpha Barry said the bloc also demanded Condé’s release from custody.

Leaders of the 15-nation bloc held a virtual meeting to discuss the coup waged by elite troops led by the 41-year-old Col Mamady Doumbouya.

He accused Condé, 83, of rampant corruption and human rights abuses.

The deposed president’s whereabouts are unclear, although the coup leaders have said he is safe.
