Many thousands have been turning out to demonstrations against President Alpha Condé.

Guinea’s opposition has suspended protests against President Alpha Condé’s suspected plan to amend the constitution to prolong his rule, the AFP news agency reports.

The demonstrations by the National Front for the Defence of the Constitution (FNDC), an alliance of opposition groups, have left at least three people dead.

The opposition is suspending the protests from 15 January, the FNDC is quoted by AFP as saying.

The suspension is to allow for the “calm burial of our victims and for Guineans to restock” basic goods.

Previous demonstrations against Mr Condé have been broken up by security forces leading to at least 20 deaths.
