Bodies on the streets as violence rocks Burundi

1 post in this topic

The US government urged its citizens on Sunday to immediately leave Burundi after 87 people were killed in the capital Bujumbura, many reportedly shot dead execution-style.

The State Department said it has ordered the departure of non-emergency personnel and dependents of US government employees from Burundi because of escalating violence linked to President Pierre Nkurunziza's disputed third term.

Violence was ignited on Friday after attacks by assailants on three army installations, Burundian officials said on Saturday.
