Three killed in Burundi attacks ahead of Ban visit

“Three people were killed in gun and grenade attacks in Burundi, officials said on Monday, just hours before the arrival of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who is trying to end the bloodshed over President Pierre Nkurunziza’s disputed re-election.

The United Nations is under growing pressure to show it can halt the violence, two decades after the 1994 genocide of ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus by the Hutu majority in neighboring Rwanda, which has a similar ethnic make-up to Burundi.”
