"A rocket attack on the presidential palace in Conakry, Guinea, suggests that Guinea’s transition to democratic rule remains fragile. Guinea’s President Alpha Conde, who survived the two-hour attack, praised his presidential guard for repelling the attackers, whose identities remain unknown. Mr. Conde was elected in December 2010, after a military junta voluntarily stepped down from power after a year of military rule." (07/20/11)
