Guineans voted on Saturday in a parliamentary election to complete its transition to democracy after a 2008 military coup and end decades of political instability.

The election, two years overdue, is the first democratic parliamentary vote since independence from France in 1958. A disputed result could reignite ethnic and political violence that has killed dozens in the run-up to voting. (Reuters)
