A judge in Guinea has rejected a request from a former military ruler, Captain Moussa Dadis Camara, that he should be placed under house arrest rather than remain in prison during his trial for mass murder.

Captain Camara, returned to the country last month after twelve years in exile.

He is on trial along with ten other former officials over atrocities that took place in twenty-zero-nine, soon after he seized power.

The former military ruler is charged with being responsible for soldiers’ killing of more than one hundred and fifty people and the rape of more than one hundred women at an opposition rally in a Conakry stadium.

He has denied the charges.
