US aiding Americans, Canadians to evacuate Burundi: State Dept

Armed police stand on a vehicle outside the president's office in Bujumbura on May 17, 2015The United States helped evacuate American, Canadian and other foreign citizens from Burundi, rocked by weeks of deadly street protests and an attempted coup, a State Department spokesman said. Burundi’s streets have been mired in violence since the announcement by President Pierre Nkurunziza that he would stand for a third term in office. On Wednesday, a group of top generals tried to overthrow him while he was on a visit to neighboring Tanzania, and Nkurunziza made his first public appearance since the attempted coup on Sunday. The United States warned of the “volatile” situation in the landlocked, east African nation, and said it had assisted more than two dozen people to leave on planes that departed to neighboring Rwanda.
