CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) — A lawyer for Guinea’s former strongman leader Moussa “Dadis” Camara says he is back in jail after authorities said earlier in the day that he had escaped. Attorney  Jacomey Haba says that Camara did not escape but rather was abducted by the gunmen who stormed the correctional facility early Saturday. However, authorities say they’re launching an investigation into escape and weapons possession charges. Camara, who came to power in a 2008 coup d’etat, has been detained in connection with a stadium massacre during his brief time in power. Two other high-profile detainees also have escaped _ Claude Pivi and Blaise Goumou.
