The leader of the coup which ousted Guinea’s President Alpha Condé has said a new “union” government would be formed in weeks. Col Mamady Doumbouya told ministers who served in Mr Condé’s government that there would be no witch-hunt against former officials. President Condé remains in detention, but his fate is unclear. “I strongly condemn any takeover of the government by force of the gun and call for the immediate release of President Alpha Condé,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres tweeted.
Col Doumbouya, who heads the army’s special forces unit, did not say on Monday when the new government would be in place. “A consultation will be launched to set down the broad parameters of the transition, and then a government of national union will be established to steer the transition,” he said in his statement. He told former ministers that they could not leave the country and had to hand over their official vehicles to the military. He also announced the reopening of land and air borders.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has rejected the idea of holding the World Cup every two years, saying it would “dilute” the tournament. FIFA is holding a feasibility study into a biennial men’s and women’s World Cup following a proposal from the Saudi Arabian football federation in May.
“The jewel of the World Cup had value precisely because of its rarity,” said Ceferin. Speaking in person in front of 160 club representatives at the General Assembly of the European Clubs’ Association in Geneva, he added: “Holding it every two years will lead to more randomization, less legitimacy and unfortunately, dilute the World Cup itself.”
