BISSAU - Guinea Bissau's former head of military intelligence, Colonel Samba Diallo, was shot dead at a bar near his residence in the capital Bissau late on Sunday, hours after a presidential election, witnesses and a security source said.

Diallo was among the military officials deposed and temporarily jailed in an April 2010 coup within the military that ousted Army Chief of Staff Jose Zamora Induta.

A nearby resident told Reuters that soldiers fired on Diallo just before midnight and his body was taken away. Another witness said he saw Diallo's body at a hospital, and a security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the killing.
