CONAKRY, March 2 (Reuters) - Guinea's government has dispatched security forces to prevent RUSAL (RUSL.MM: Quote) (0486.HK: Quote) from exporting alumina from the port of Conakry, two sources with knowledge of RUSAL's operations said on Wednesday.

The measure was taken due to a row over pollution caused by the firm's operations in the West African nation, the sources added.

RUSAL has capacity for 640,000 tonnes of alumina a year in Guinea which the Russian firm ships around the world for further refining into aluminium.
