Lawyer and senior counsel with the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch, Elise Keppler (R), shakes hands with the Guinean Minister for Human Rights, Kalifa Gassama Diaby, before a press conference dedicated to a Human Rights Watch report on the 2009 massacre of opposition supporters by junta troops, in Conakry, on December 5, 2012. Human Rights Watch today called on Guinea to step up efforts to bring to justice those responsible for a stadium massacre in 2009 that left almost 160 people dead. A 2009 HRW investigation suggested that the 'killings, rapes and other abuses that security forces committed on and after September 28 (2009) rise to the level of crimes against humanity due to their widespread and systematic nature and evidence that the crimes were premeditated and organised', HRW said in a report today. The massacre occurred when a peaceful rally organised by the opposition in Conakry's biggest stadium was bloodily suppressed by junta troops, leaving 157 dead, hundreds of women victims of sexual violence and over a thousand people injured.
