Burundi Coup: Rival Soldiers Battle For Supremacy

Rival groups of soldiers in Burundi are battling for control of the capital Bujumbura amid confusion over the success of an attempted coup.

There is heavy fighting at the state radio building, where broadcasts have been going on and off air.

Witnesses say soldiers loyal to President Pierre Nkurunziza controlled key areas, including the airport, while coup leaders insist that they remain in charge of the country.

The unrest began when Nkurunziza announced he was seeking a third term of office, a move that is at variance with the position of Burundi’s constitution.

The whereabouts of the president is now unknown, as he has since left Tanzania where he went to brief members of the African Union, AU on the crisis in his country regarding his third term bid as at the time the coup was declared.

Meanwhile, the African Union Peace And Security Council will convene an emergency meeting on Thursday to consider deliberating on the situation in Burundi.

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for
    another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d really
    appreciate it.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    There are chauffeur driven executive minibuses ideal when you are entering
    Norwich for business purposes and want to make maximum use of travel time in discussion with associates and business partners.
    These families earn their living from the diversified supply of
    the marine life. However you should not return right away but
    book a cruise in 4 hours cruise in Halong bay and have lunch on board, about 50 usd only and you will have a memorable experience with a Vietnamese style lunch in the middle of the bay,
    admire the caves and grottoes, kayaking among the blue lagoons.
