Guinea's Col. Doumbouya fires 1000 soldiers, 44 Generals Retired

Guinea's Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, who seized power in a coup in the West African nation in September, has announced that he is placing nearly 1,000 soldiers into retirement. In a speech on Sunday evening, the strongman said the retirements will come into force on Monday and "must in no way be considered as a punishment". "After having loyally served Guinea, nearly a thousand military personnel will enjoy their right to a deserved retirement," Doumbouya, 37, said.
