African Union suspends Guinea over coup

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - The African Union suspended Guinea on Monday following last week’s coup and called for a return to constitutional order in the West African country.

“The peace and security council of the AU on Monday decided to suspend the participation of Guinea in the activities of the AU until the return to constitutional order in that country,” the African Union council said in a statement.

“The AU reiterates its firm condemnation of the coup d’etat, which is a flagrant violation of the constitution of Guinea.”
