Polls close in Guinea’s tense presidential election

Votes are being counted in Guinea’s presidential election, following months of deadly unrest and a campaign marred by violence.
The poll appears to have been largely peaceful but dozens of opposition supporters say they had trouble casting their ballots.
At the age of 82, President Alpha Conde amended the constitution allowing him to run for a third mandate, despite widespread protests.
