Army units in Guinea-Bissau stormed a military garrison where mutinous soldiers were believed to be holed up Thursday, but the rebels had fled and were at large in the West African country. Antonio Dias, the Portuguese ambassador in Bissau, the capital, said the army met no resistance when it assaulted the Bissalanca garrison five miles outside the city. "Shots were fired during the assault, but I believe there was no return fire," Dias said by phone. He said there were no reports of deaths.
