Massacre, rapes at rally in Guinea premeditated

Massacre, rapes at rally in Guinea premeditated

A U.S.-based human rights group says the Sept. 28 massacre by Guinean troops of at least 150 people and the rapes of dozens of women at a pro-democracy rally in Guinea were premeditated _ and that rapes of kidnapped women continued for days.
The leader of Guinea's military junta has blamed the attack on "uncontrolled" elements of the army. But In a report released Tuesday, Human Rights Watch cited witnesses who saw senior officers at the stadium where the massacre and rapes took place.
The group says the presidential guard entered the stadium and immediately opened fire on defenseless pro-democracy protesters. Soldiers then began raping women in and outside the stadium, suggesting it was organized.
