Stalls occupy the sidewalk on October 6, 2013 outside the Madina market, the main market in Conakry, which has been closed since September 27, on the eve of legislative elections because of fear of violence. Guinea's President Alpha Conde has stepped up security in the city amid fears of clashes after the election. The shopkeepers say that looting is not just the work of unruly youth gangs. They also blame uniformed members of the security forces and 'armed bandits'. Tensions ran high in the city before the elections, where one person was killed and 70 wounded in recent political clashes, according to the authorities, and the strain is still evident after the vote.
