At least 10 people have died in post-election violence in Guinea.

This was confirmed by the country’s security minister.

Reuters News Agency Reports shows that President Alpha Condé is currently leading according to results from the 14 constituencies announced by the electoral commission so far out of 20 constituencies.

His challenger Cellou Dalein Diallou claimed victory and said the election was marred by “anomalies”.

He accused President Condé’s administration of modifying results in the incumbent’s favour.

His bid for a third term had led to protests before the elections during which at least 50 people died, according to Amnesty International.

The President has appealed for calm as official results of the election are expected.
