Guinea Forces 'planned crackdown'
A deadly crackdown on protesters in Guinea in September was "premeditated and pre-planned at the highest level", Human Rights Watch says.
Soldiers deployed at the sports stadium where protesters had gathered blocked the exits before systematically killing and raping protesters, the group says.
Activists say 157 people were killed but officials say far fewer died and claim most were trampled to death.
