    Emmanuel Niyonkuru was killed shortly after midnight on Sunday. Police say the gunman attacked him while he was on his way home. The woman he was with has been taken into custody for questioning. The assassination comes after a relative period of calm in the country. Burundi was plunged into chaos in 2015 when President Nkurunziza successfully won a controversial third term in power. Since then, at least 500 people have been killed and 300 thousand people displaced.

For More Latest News Subscribe us: BUJUMBURA: The capital of Burundi was quiet but tense on Thursday after a night of heavy gunfire, particularly in the restive neighbourhood of Musaga, where residents spoke of running battles between stone-throwing youths and police. Reuters reporters entering Musaga saw dozens of police armed with automatic rifles and tear gas launchers, as well as a handful of soldiers. There were no signs of the crowds that have gathered early each morning for the last three weeks in the capital Bujumbura to demonstrate against President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision to seek a third term in elections scheduled for next month. "There was shooting through the night. Tension was very high," 28-year-old Musaga resident Bosco, who did not want to give his last name, told Reuters. It was unclear if there had been any casualties. More than 20 people have died in nearly a month of unrest, including a failed military coup, but the major fear is the power struggle re-opening old wounds in a county with a long history of genocide and civil war between its Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. In a state television address late on Wednesday, Nkurunziza stressed the need for national unity, saying that Burundi's bloody past - including a civil war that ended in 2005 after the deaths of 300,000 people - could not be ignored.

Subscribe to France 24 now : http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN When Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza announced he was running for a controversial third mandate in April 2015, he sparked a major crisis and many demonstrations. Since then, hundreds of people have been killed and more than 300,000 Burundians have fled to neighbouring countries. Our reporters, Nicolas Germain and Julie Dungelhoeff, despite a few visa problems, met Burundian refugees in Uganda and Tanzania. If we had watched this scene in a film, we would have thought the screenwriter was pushing it a bit. Yet this is really what happened. Our plane was moving on the runway of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. Destination Kigali, the Rwandan capital. We were just about to put our phones on airplane mode. That’s precisely when the phone rang. "I’m from the Rwandan embassy. I’m calling you to tell you that your visas have been cancelled." "Sir, that’s impossible. We’re on the plane. We’re about to take off." "I repeat, your visas have been cancelled. Get off the plane, you won’t be able to enter Rwanda, immigration services have been warned." End of conversation. A few seconds later the plane takes off. So we got off at the stopover in Istanbul. A month after this incident, the Rwandan embassy has yet to give us an explanation for this dramatic U-turn. This decision can only reinforce the suspicions of UN experts who allege Rwanda is recruiting Burundian rebels in refugee camps. Indeed, we had said we were working on the crisis in Burundi and its consequences: more than 300,000 refugees are now living in neighbouring countries including Rwanda. Burundi refused to give us a visa. Rwanda, as we just saw, did the same. So we went to Uganda, and Tanzania - which is the country which hosts the most Burundian refugees. In April 2015, President Pierre Nkurunziza, who had been in power for a decade, announced he was running for a contentious third mandate. For several weeks afterwards, thousands took to the streets to protest. A violent repression ensued. In the months that followed, major figures from both the ruling party and the opposition were shot dead. During that time, several hundred people were killed, most of them opposition supporters, and there was a mass exodus of Burundians. They cross the border with just one bag on their head We arrive in Tanzania, in the Kigoma region. Currently there are three Burundian refugee camps in the country. But nearly two years after the start of the crisis, some 10,000 Burundians still arrive here every month. We see some early one morning. They cross the border with just one bag on their head, carrying very young children. They have walked for hours and are absolutely exhausted. They say they’ve been threatened by the Imbonerakure, the ruling party’s youth league – a “militia” according to the UN. “They tell us to leave otherwise they’ll slaughter us!” says one refugee. Burundi is a small country but very populous, and the flight of refugees is a bonus for those who then seize their plots of land. Burundi refused to give us a visa, but the president’s main advisor, Willy Nyamitwe, answered our questions via a journalist based in Bujumbura. This is what he had to say about the Imbonerakure: “Those who are outside the country say they were arrested at nighttime by the Imbonerakure, it’s absolutely not true. I’m a former Imbonerakure, the president is a former Imbonerakure. All the hopes of the Burundian people today depend on the solidity, bravery and patriotism of the Imbonerakure. 'They beat us like we were animals' We then head for Kampala, the Ugandan capital. A 20-hour drive on both tarmac and dirt tracks. Only one puncture. Later, two trucks got bogged down, blocked the road, and we had to spend the night in the car… The road follows the borders of Burundi and Rwanda. The Great Lakes region is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in Africa. Those who have fled to Kampala, rather than Rwanda which is closer, say it’s because life is cheaper than in Kigali and they feel freer here. In the Ugandan capital, we meet young men who were tortured by the regime in Bujumbura. In the city centre, there’s a rooftop bar where Burundian refugees like to gather. One man tells us what he had to endure. “There was a large red container, they put us in it, then they threw tear gas inside to make us suffer. Then they closed the container. We suffered inside it all night. We weren’t considered as human beings, they beat us like we were animals.” A few days later he managed to escape to Uganda. UN warns of ...

The human rights situation in Burundi has deteriorated significantly since 2015, in particular in the capital, Bujumbura.

Two Burundi police officers and a civilian were killed and more than 10 wounded in grenade attacks in two areas of the capital late on Friday, a police spokesman said, after the president warned of tough measures against those behind street protests. The three were killed in the Kamenge district of Bujumbura. Another district was also hit, he said, adding that one of the police men killed was a senior officer. Bujumbura has been rocked by six consecutive days of demonstrations against the president, who on Friday warned of "severe sanctions" against those protesting over his decision to seek a third term in office. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/OlAXNMsTXws/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

The president of Burundi has returned home to a febrile and divided country after a military coup failed to dislodge him but left his political critics vowing to keep up protests against his plan to run for a third term. Crowds of thousands gathered on Friday in Kamenga, a predominantly loyalist neighbourhood in the capital Bujumbura, to greet Pierre Nkurunziza as he returned from his home village after crossing the border back into Burundi on Thursday night. In his first address to the nation since the coup attempt, Nkurunziza warned that the protests against him must now end, and linked the demonstrators with the coup plotters. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/may/15/burundi-president-returns-to-divided-capital-after-failed-coup http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
