Election violence in Guinea capital

Guinea's capital consumed by fighting. At least 11 people have been shot or beaten to death since Thursday in unrest that began over election preparations. Looting and sectarian clashes are now adding to the violence. Security forces opened fire on protesters in opposition strongholds in the capital Conakry on Saturday, killing five. Among the crowd that gathered at a local morgue was Ibrahima Diallo. He was looking for his brother's body. (SOUNDBITE) (French) IBRAHIMA DIALLO, BROTHER OF VICTIM KILLED SATURDAY (MAY 25), SAYING: "He had just left when a woman who had her son behind her, dropped her baby while running. He went back to save the baby and the police shot at him." June legislative elections are intended to complete Guinea's transition to civilian rule following a military coup in 2008. But opposition members fearing the government will rig the vote have taken to the streets in protest.
