Ambush in Northern Burundi

Burundi rebels have killed eight people and seriously wounded several others in an ambush on Monday, north of the country. About 50 militia from the Forces for the Defence of Democracy, (FDD), are said to have attacked a passenger vehicle, near the northern town of Kayanza, from their stronghold in Kibira forest and stolen goods on board.
