The African Union said it would temporarily suspend Guinea's membership "until the return of constitutional order" in the country, after a military junta seized power on Dec. 23 in a coup led by army officer Moussa Dadis Camara.

AFP - The African Union on Monday suspended Guinea after a military coup in the west African nation.
   
"The African Union decides to suspend the participation of Guinea in the activities of the African Union until the return of constitutional order in that country," the pan-African body said in a statement.
   
Moussa Dadis Camara and allies in the Guinea military seized power after the death of long-serving president Lansana Conte last week, but the move has been widely criticised.
