Two more people KILLED in the quest for a 3rd term Presidency in #Burundi #HNNPolitics

Two people have been killed in renewed protests in Burundi, against President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term in office. Witnesses said they were shot during a confrontation between police and demonstrators in a district (Musanga) of the capital Bujumbura. A BBC correspondent in the city says youths also threw stones at the police in defiance of a government order for all protests to come to an end. The opposition called the government decree a 'declaration of war'.

Just don't involve Rwanda again. Genocide should be a thing of the past

#Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza has officially declared that he will seek a third term in elections due in June, reports the BBC's Eloge Willy Kaneza from the capital, Bujumbura.

He handed documents to this effect to the electoral commission during a visit to its offices, despite widespread opposition to his decision to run for office again.

At least 18 people have been killed in protests, which continued today. A grenade was thrown in the Kanyosha district of the capital.
