It was announced on Tuesday that sixteen people including ten soldiers have been charged with the attempted assassination of Guinean President Alpha Conde at his home in Conakry, two weeks ago.
Ten of the accused appeared in court on Monday in a suburb of Conakry, where they were charged and remanded in custody reported an anonymous source.
They faced charges of "criminal association, threat to state security, murder of a member of the presidential guard and attempted assassination" of the head of state.
They were also accused of illegal possession of weapons and ammunition and destruction of goods and buildings.
Several of the accused are close allies of General Sekouba Konate, who led a transition government in 2010, including former army chief Nouhou Thiam and Konate's former aide de camp Sidiki Camara.
Six other accused were charged last week Wednesday.
The sixteen are among 38 people arrested after rogue soldiers attacked Conde's home, hitting it with a rocket and killing one member of the presidential guard.
The other suspects are still being held at a police station in the capital.
