Guinea coup leaders demote all generals

The leaders of a recent coup in Guinea have said on state-run radio that all generals of the former regime are being demoted.
The declaration read by coup spokesman Nouhou Thiam named more than 20 military heads, including the generals that ran the country's army, navy and air force. The list also includes security force chiefs.
He said the demotions are effective immediately and added that the military heads of the former regime will be reassigned to other jobs in the army.
The coup last Tuesday came a day after the death of Lansana Conte who ruled Guinea for 24 years. It was led by junior officers who call their superiors corrupt.
