Guinea's ex-junta chief blocked from returning home: party

Guinea's former military ruler Captain Moussa Dadis Camara holds a press conference on May 11, 2015, from Ouagadougou, to announce his intention to run for the upcoming 2015 Guinean presidential electionA plane carrying Guinea’s exiled former junta chief Moussa Dadis Camara back home, where he hopes to run for president, was diverted to Ghana on Wednesday, his party said. Camara is a former army captain who seized power in a 2008 coup after the death of longtime dictator Lansane Conte, a move that was initially welcomed but quickly turned sour as he oversaw a bloody crackdown on his opponents. Manimou said all passengers “were asked to get off the plane at the Accra airport”, before being allowed to reboard, with the exception of Camara, his lawyer and bodyguard.
