CONAKRY - Guinea President Alpha Conde said on Sunday he believes the governments of Senegal and Gambia were complicit in a failed attempt to assassinate him in July.

Conde escaped two gunfire and rocket attacks on his residence in the capital Conakry on July 19 that killed at least three people and left his home riddled with bullets.

"I think the Senegalese government was complicit and so was the Gambian government, even if they say they were unaware," Conde said in an interview with private Senegalese radio broadcaster Sud FM.

He said he believed that the attacks on his residence were planned at one of Senegal's top hotels, the Meridien President, where his chief political rival Cellou Dalein Diallo stays when he is in Dakar.
