[HRW] "When they killed my son, they killed me too. I would have preferred it if they had let him live and killed me instead... God asks us to forgive, but I can't forgive those people."

According to an eyewitness, Alpha Souleymane Diallo was shot dead on November 14, 2019 by a member of the Guinean security forces.
