11 people confirmed killed: the aftermath of the failed coup in Guinea-Bissau

The government of Guinea-Bissau reports that eleven individuals were killed in Tuesday’s unsuccessful coup attempt against President Umaro Sissoco Embaló.

Soldiers and civilians are said to have died in the attack.

To discover the mystery gunmen, a thorough investigation has been begun.

Since then, the army has been patrolling the capital’s streets.

Shops and banks have reopened, although there are few consumers in Bissau’s markets.

The area around the main government facility, which was the scene of a five-hour gun war, is still cordoned off.

Because Guinea-Bissau is a crossroads for cocaine trafficking between Latin America and Europe, many people believe the coup was orchestrated by drug cartels.
