Inquiry in Guinea

The U.N. set up an international inquiry into a bloody crackdown on protesters in Guinea last month. Gunmen used live rounds against anti-government protesters on Sept. 28 in a stadium in Guinea's capital Conakry. The violence killed 157 people and wounded more than a thousand, according to a local rights group. Tensions after the violence have led France to advise its citizens to leave the West African country and the United States to withdraw diplomats' families.
