BISSAU (Reuters) - A journalist in Guinea-Bissau was attacked at home by men with AK-47 rifles on Tuesday night, a day after the radio station where he works was ransacked, said a witness and a colleague.

The attacks came a week after an assault on a government compound where President Umaro Sissoco Embalo was leading a cabinet meeting. The government said the raid was a failed coup attempt that could have been linked to drug trafficking.
