Burundi denies soldiers in eastern DRCongo

A soldier stands guard in Kibati near Goma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, on September 4, 2013Bujumbura (Burundi) (AFP) – Burundi’s army on Saturday denied that any of its troops were operating in the war-torn eastern Democratic Republic of Congo after being accused by a rights group of pursuing two journalists in the region. On Friday the Kinshasa-based press freedom group Journaliste en Danger (JED) said two reporters in the area had been investigating whether members of the youth wing of Burundi’s ruling party were being given military training in DR Congo’s anarchic eastern Kivu region. The group alleged the two journalists from Radio Ondes FM had been visited several times by soldiers suspected of being members of Burundi’s army, and voiced fears for their safety. “We categorically deny this report,” Burundian army spokesman Colonel Gaspard Baratuza told AFP.
