In Guinea in the city of Timbo at least 59 people were injured in riots that erupted at the opening of a new mosque, reports the Jerusalem Post.

The riots began due to the fact that the police were not allowed into the mosque ordinary citizens to skip local authorities. This angered the youth who began throwing stones and tried to force pave his way to the mosque. The anti-riot police had to use tear gas.

About 85% of the Guinean population profess the Sunni branch of Islam. City of Timbo, which is 260 km from the capital Conakry, is one of centers for the study of Islam in Guinea.
