Coup leaders announced a 32-member interim government for Guinea on Wednesday, hours after they said were in control of the mineral-rich West African country following the death of its dictator. In a takeover announcement, the group calling itself the National Council for Democracy said presidential elections would be held within 60 days and that an interim president and prime minister would be appointed. Its spokesman, Capt. Moussa Camara, later said the interim government would be made up of 26 military members and six civilians. On Wednesday, military music played on state-run radio airwaves.
