Guinea presidential rivals appeal for calm

The rival presidential candidates in the west African state of Guinea have appealed for calm from their supporters.

There has been violence in the streets of the country's capital, Conakry, following Friday's announcement that the deciding round of the election was to be indefinitely postponed.

The election is intended to be the first democratic poll in Guinea after 52 years of authoritarian rule, but this is the third time it has been called off.
