Some Hopeful Signs Out of Guinea

Couple of hopeful news items out of Guinea. It looks like junta leader, Camara, getting shot in the head by an aide was probably a very good development for the country. The interim military leader, Sekouba Konate, seems to have no designs on staying in power, is talking about forming a new unity government, and says a Prime Minister drawn from the opposition would be acceptable. It also looks like ECOWAS, the West African IGO, is putting pressure on the junta to quickly transition toward a more democratic rule (following a little strategic sabre-rattling).
