Green Berets in Guinea Escorted by Security Team After President’s Overthrow

A team of U.S. Green Berets on a recent training mission in the West African nation of Guinea needed local security forces’ help to make it through a chaotic street scene after the country’s president was ousted, U.S. Africa Command confirmed Friday.

A video circulating on social media this week shows three U.S. soldiers in a car that is surrounded by people jumping up and down as it’s making its way to the U.S. Embassy in the Guinean capital of Conakry. Armed Guinean troops are seen providing security.

“Guinean security forces provided an escort to Conakry to ensure the safe passage of the team,” U.S. Africa Command said in a statement.

The soldiers were part of an Army special operations team that was forced to cancel planned training activities after a military seizure of power Sunday, AFRICOM said. It added that they had been moved to the U.S. Embassy.
