There are reports of a failed military coup in Guinea-Bissau. The conflict seems to have lasted for a fairly short amount of time and seems to have taken place between different elements of the military rather than against the government itself. However, there are also reports that civilian politicians were involved in the plot and that arrests will follow.
Meanwhile, there has been plenty of recent speculation about the health of President Malam Bacai Sanhá. He seems to have received medical treatment in Senegal and now France. There have been reports that he is in a coma. Certainly, he has not been active in the country for some time.
