In one of the videos, the distraught-looking Condé is seen seated on a sofa while surrounded by soldiers.

He was asked by soldiers from a unit of elite special forces to confirm he is unharmed but he did not answer.

Another video shows a group of soldiers declaring his overthrow to the Guineans and the world.

According to a report by Reuters, the soldiers said that all land and air borders have been closed and the government dissolved.

“The only bridge connecting the mainland to the Kaloum peninsular, which houses most ministries and the presidential palace, has been sealed off and many soldiers, some heavily armed, have been posted around the palace”, a military source told Reuters news agency

There had been earlier reports of hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry.

However, other reports quoted the country’s defence minister as saying the attempted coup d’état had been foiled.

Three soldiers are reported to have been killed as a result of the alleged attempted coup.
