A government spokesman says Guinea-Bissau's prime minister has been released from house arrest after an apparent coup attempt.
Renegade soldiers threatened to kill the leader Thursday and detained the head of the armed forces.
Mamodou Djau says that soldiers have left Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Jr.'s home, but police remain there to maintain order. He says that the prime minister will meet with the president Friday to discuss the coup attempt.
