Guinea's coup leader Col. Mamady sworn in as president.

Col Mamady Doumbouya has been sworn is as Guinea's interim president after leading a coup which saw the overthrow of Alpha Condé.

The former French legionnaire, 41, becomes Africa's second-youngest leader, after Mali's Assimi Goïta, 38, who also staged a military takeover.

Col Doumbouya is barred from contesting future elections under plans to restore civilian rule announced this week.

The 5 September coup has been widely condemned.

Both West Africa body Ecowas and the African Union have suspended Guinea.

Ecowas also imposed sanctions against the coup leaders and demanded a return to constitutional order within six months.
