Guinea: Conakry Massacre Report Blames Weak International Controls

A report into the massacre at Conakry in Guinea has found that weak arms control standards in Europe and Africa contributed to the events of last September, when 156 people were killed or disappeared, and at least 109 women were subjected to sexual violence. The report, published by Amnesty International reveals how weapons and security equipment from South Africa and France were used during the event.  Reacting to the report, Dr Cherif Karamo, coordinator of West Africa Network for Peacebuilding, called for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. "We have to fight so justice can be found and that the responsible people face trial at the International Criminal Court, because impunity fuels human right violations." More
