The African Union on Friday condemned Guinea-Bissau troops who arrested the country's presidential front-runner Carlos Gomes Junior in an apparent coup, describing the action as "outrageous."

AU commission chief Jean Ping voiced "strong condemnation by the AU of these outrageous acts which undermine the efforts to stabilise the situation in Guinea-Bissau and tarnish the image of the country and Africa."
