Guinea has shut its border with Senegal and Guinea-Bissau ahead of the general elections scheduled for next month.
Government sources said the closure was for security reasons.
Guinea-Bissau’s Interior Minister, Botche Cande, said the border had been closed since Sunday but his Guinean counterpart did not confirm this.
Guinea’s President Alpha Condé is seeking a controversial third term in the October 18 general elections.
The president is taking advantage of a new constitution to circumvent a two-term presidential limit.
