Guinea coup leader says it will not bow to pressure to let president leave

Guinea's coup leader Mamady Doumbouya said on Friday it would not bow to pressure from regional leaders to allow President Alpha Conde, whom it detained during a coup earlier this month, to leave the country.

On Friday, a delegation from the 15-member Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) arrived in Conakry, the capital city of Guinea, for talks with the leadership of the coup in the country.

The delegation includes Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo and Cote d'Ivoire's President Alassane Ouattara.
