Two killed as Burundi forces search for weapons

At least 200 people in Burundi have died in the latest turmoil and 200,000 have fled the country, sparking fears the violence could spiral into mass bloodlettingAt least two people were killed and a policeman wounded in gun battles in Burundi’s capital, police and witnesses said Monday, as security forces searched opposition strongholds for weapons. Ahead of UN Security Council talks on Burundi’s worsening violence later Monday, a senior police officer said “armed criminals” wounded an officer when they hurled a grenade at a patrol in the capital Bujumbura, in the flashpoint opposition district of Musaga. Burundi has suffered a dramatic rise in killings, arrests and detentions since President Pierre Nkurunziza launched a controversial bid to stand for a third term in April.
