Authorities in Guinea say at least nine people were killed during a jailbreak in the capital, Conakry, in which former military ruler, Moussa Dadis Camara and three others were briefly freed.
The justice ministry said suspected attackers, security forces and civilians were among the dead.
The former president and two of the men were later returned to jail.
They are on trial for their alleged role in the killing of more than 150 protesters at Conakry stadium 14 years ago.
Camara has denied the charges.
