A security officer in Guinea has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of a 19-year-old.
Moriba Camara shot dead Thierno Mamadou Diallo during opposition coalition protests last June.
The prosecution had sought a longer sentence of 25 years in jail for Camara, and the victim’s brother reportedly said the court’s lesser sentence of 10 years was too light for such a crime.
Since 2021 Guinea has been governed by military leaders, who pushed out ex-President Alpha Condé in a coup.
In August last year the junta banned the influential FNDC opposition coalition which had led earlier protests against Mr Condé and also against the new military rulers.
