Leaders of West Africa regional bloc Ecowas have imposed travel bans and a freeze of the financial assets of Guinea’s coup leaders and their families.
The sanctions are expected to put more pressure on the military junta to restore constitutional rule.
The decisions were announced after an extraordinary summit in Accra, Ghana, on Wednesday.
The regional bloc also wants the junta to conduct elections within six months and insists that none of the military leaders should be allowed to contest the polls.
The leaders however expressed their willingness to support the country through the transitional process.
They have called on the Africa Union, the UN, and their international partners to help enforce the travel bans and financial sanctions against the junta and their families.
They’re also demanding the unconditional release of the ousted President Alpha Condé.
An elite military united headed by Col Mamady Doumbouya seized power in Guinea nearly two weeks ago, accusing the government of mismanagement and corruption.
