    Guinea Introduction - 2004
    http://www.immigration-usa.com/wfb2004/guinea/guinea_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2004 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Independent from France since 1958, Guinea did not hold democratic elections until 1993 when Gen. Lansana CONTE (head of the military government) was elected president of the civilian government. He was reelected in 1998 and again in 2003. Unrest in Sierra Leone and Liberia has spilled over into Guinea on several occasions over the past decade, threatening stability and creating humanitarian emergencies.
