Guinea snubs strike threat to jail opposition politicians

(Audio available further in this article)

Guinea's new government has jailed seven opposition politicians despite an appeal to release them and a threat to strike if they are not set free.
Opposition leader Cellou Dalien Diallo this week threatened to launch a nationwide disobedience campaign if those held were not released.

Seven of the 67 arrested last week over holding unauthorised meetings in the capital Conakry were on Tuesday tried and sent to jail.
Seventeen of them received a suspended six--month jail term while the rest were exonerated by the court and released.
The trial pulled large crowds eager to witness the first public trial of opposition members by a government led by erstwhile opposition leader Alpha Conde.
The crowd chanted anti-government slogans while demanding the release of seven other detainees who are minors and believed to be still in custody.
Those arrested were picked up on April 3 during an opposition march to the airport to welcome back Mr Diallo after a three-month absence.
But the procession turned violent when riot police dispelled it leading to the death of one person and injury to over two dozen others.
Human rights organisations have condemned the incident.
