EU imposes sanctions on Guinea's leaders

The European Union says it has imposed an arms embargo and visa ban on Guinea's military leaders to punish them for a massacre at a pro-democracy rally.
The EU said in a statement Tuesday it is drawing up a list of Guinean leaders to be included in the visa ban and it is also moving to freeze assets of the junta leaders.
Late last month, presidential guard troops opened fire on tens of thousands of demonstrators. A Guinean human rights group says 157 people were killed, while the government put the number at 57.
