Guinea strike marks 1 month since bloody massacre

Guinea strike marks 1 month since bloody massacre

A Guinean opposition group says tens of thousands of workers are striking on the one-month anniversary of a bloody massacre in which troops shot at demonstrators.
Opposition member Mohamed Camara says most of Guinea's 97,000 government workers heeded the call to strike Wednesday.
A Guinean human rights group says 157 people were killed and more than 1,200 wounded at the Sept. 28 rally. The government put the death toll at 57.
Human Rights Watch says dozens of women were seized from the stadium and driven in military vehicles to villas where they were gang-raped by uniformed men over several days.
The leader of Guinea's military junta has said "uncontrolled" elements of the army carried out the rapes and killings.
