U.N. reports gang-rapes, mass graves in Burundi

“The United Nations has documented cases of Burundi’s security forces gang-raping women during searches of opposition supporters’ houses and heard witness testimony of mass graves, U.N. human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said on Friday. Burundi has suffered a worsening wave of violence since President Pierre Nkurunziza said he would seek a third term his opponents say is illegal. At least 439 people have been killed in the violence and 200,000 have fled the country.”
