Guinea’s former military ruler Moussa Dadis Camara is going on trial over one of the country’s worst massacres.
Capt. Camara returned from 12 years in exile to “clear his name which has been dragged through the mud”, his lawyer said.
More than 150 people were killed, women and girls were raped at a 2009 protest against military rule.
One woman said she was raped, assaulted, floored by a soldier who even asked her if he could cut off her arms.
Ten other former officials are going on trial alongside Capt. Camara, who is charged with having command irresponsibility over the soldiers who carried out the alleged crimes. END
