Conakry - A journalists' association in Guinea says that two privately-owned radio stations have been attacked, as political tensions rise before Guinea's legislative elections on 12 May.

The Union of Free Radio and Television of Guinea said on Monday that the Renaissance FM station was attacked on Sunday and the Planet FM radio station was shot at on Friday when Faya Millimo, leader of the opposition Liberal Bloc, was being interviewed at the station.

Also, anti-riot used tear gas to disperse anti-government protesters in Labe, about 450km northeast of the capital, Conakry, and in Mamou, about 333km northeast of the capital.

Two civilians and one police officer have been killed in a series of anti-government demonstrations that rocked the capital over the past two weeks.
