UN ending Burundi police role in Central Africa mission

Soldiers from MINUSCA (UN Mission in the Central African Republic) patrol in Bangui on December 10, 2015The United Nations is effectively ending police units from Burundi in its Central African Republic mission because of their involvement in human rights abuses in their country, officials said Friday. The 280 Burundian police will not be replaced when they end their tour of duty in Bangui around September, but some 840 military troops from Burundi will remain in MINUSCA for the time being. “In light of the current situation in Burundi, a decision has been taken at UN headquarters not to replace the units serving in the country when their tour of duty ends,” said UN spokesman Farhan Haq.
