The bloody crackdown has drawn broad international condemnation of the country's ruling military junta led by Captain Moussa Dadis Camara, with the European Union on Tuesday saying it would impose an arms embargo.
Human Rights Watch said Camara and some of his closest military associates in the National Campaign for Democracy and Development (CNDD) junta should face criminal prosecution for the incident, characterized by rapes and brutal beatings.
"Security forces surrounded and blockaded the stadium, then stormed in and fired at protesters in cold blood until they ran out of bullets," Africa director Georgette Gagnon said in a statement. "They carried out grisly gang rapes and murders of women in full sight of the commanders. That's no accident."
