KINSHASA (Reuters) – Guinea’s military junta said on Friday it would not bow to pressure from regional leaders to allow President Alpha Conde, whom it detained during a coup earlier this month, to leave the country.

On Friday Ivory Coast’s President Alassane Ouattara and Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo paid a one-day visit to Conakry to ask coup leader Mamady Doumbouya, a special forces commander and former French Legionnaire, for Conde’s release.
