African Union suspends Guinea following coup

The African Union has suspended Guinea after a military coup in the West African nation.
The African Union says that the suspension will stand "until the return of constitutional order in that country."
The AU made its decision Monday during a meeting of its Peace and Security Council in the Ethiopian capital.
The coup followed the death of Guinea's longtime dictator Lansana Conte on Dec. 22 after more than two decades in power.
The coup leader has said he will hold power until elections in two years.
