Alarm as gunmen stage coordinated attacks on Burundi

A military vehicle drives through the Musaga neighbourhood of the city of Bujumbura on December 11, 2015Gunmen launched coordinated pre-dawn assaults on three army bases in Burundi on Friday, sparking a confrontation which left at least a dozen attackers dead in the worst unrest since a failed coup in May. Alarmed by the violence, the United Nations Security Council was set to meet later Friday following a request from France, with UN chief Ban Ki-moon saying the attacks risked triggering “a further destabilisation of the situation,” according to his spokesman. Burundi’s army said 12 gunmen were killed and another 21 captured following a series of coordinated early-morning assaults on the Ngagara base and a military training college, both in the capital Bujumbura, as well as on a base in Mujejuru, 40 kilometres (25 miles) away.
