Guinea - Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution

O D K E N H U T C

Last Update: Reissued with updates to health information.

Exercise increased caution in Guinea due to civil unrest. 

Country Summary:  Demonstrations occur frequently throughout the country and are often sporadic and unplanned, making it difficult to predict the size, route, level of violence, or congestion that may occur.  

Any demonstration may turn violent, resulting in injuries and even fatalities.  Demonstrators may attack vehicles that attempt to pass through or around the protests, resulting in serious injuries and vehicular damage.  Criminals are known to take advantage of the resulting traffic congestion to rob drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.  Uniformed security forces may also extort drivers and passengers during these incidents.
