Burundi has been in crisis since President Pierre Nkurunziza announced in April he planned to run for a third term – a move opponents said violated the constitution and a peace treaty that ended a 12-year civil war in 2005.

Hundreds have been killed in related violence since April and 217,000 people have fled to surrounding countries, raising fears of a slide into civil conflict in a region where memories of the 1994 genocide in neighbor Rwanda are still raw.
