Guinean newspapers have not been published today and there have been no TV and radio news bulletins in protest over the killing of a journalist at an opposition rally last week.

It's the first time that the state broadcaster has joined in such a blackout.
Thirty-year-old El Hadj Mohamed Diallo was killed last Friday when he was hit by a bullet during a confrontation between rival opposition supporters.

The government has condemned the killing and officials have promised to find the culprit.
