BISSAU -Gun shots were fired overnight in Guinea-Bissau's capital Bissau and continued into Friday morning, a Reuters reporter said.

The circumstances of the shooting remain unclear.

There have been at least 10 coups or attempted coups in Guinea Bissau since independence from Portugal in 1974. Only one democratically elected president has completed a full term in the West African nation south of Senegal.

At least six people were killed during a failed attempt to overthrow President Umaro Sissoco Embalo in February last year.
