Burundi---Violence hit Burundi s capital again yes-
terday and one man in particular narrowly escaped
being killed by a mob, and he had to dive into a
sewer to survive.
Protesters were angry at attacks by the Imbonerakure,
the feared youth wing of the ruling party, on those
demonstrating against the decision by Burundi s pres-
ident to run for a third term. The protesters decided
The crowd walked the streets of a neighbourhood,
telling people to join the protest or else. Some joined;
a few ran away. They reached the house of a man
identified as Jean Claude Niyonzima, and by then they
were a mob. They believed him to be a member of
They grabbed him and attacked him with sticks
and stones. Some protesters had knives and machetes,
but apparently did not use them.
Niyonzima kept trying to escape. He was chased
through a courtyard and found himself cornered
between two buildings. Bleeding from his head, he
begged for his life. Members of the crowd were asking
him questions, as if it were an interrogation. He
squeezed through his attackers but the mob kept chas-
ing him around his yard as women cried and begged
for them to show mercy.
He finally got away and fled into the wide sewer
under a hail of stones, and he sought shelter under
a boarded section. Members of the crowd prepared
to go in after him when soldiers, who have been acting
as a buffer between protesters and the police for days,
showed up. Niyonzima emerged, his hands together
in front of him in a beseeching gesture as he asked
the rifle-toting soldiers for help. The soldiers fired
shots into the air to disperse the crowd and pulled
Niyonzima out of the sewer. (AP)

BUJUMBURA---Protesters searched for and assaulted
people suspected to be members of the ruling party s
violent youth group yesterday as the upheaval against
President Pierre Nkurunziza s bid for a third term
persisted with three more people reported killed.
One man fled under a hail of stones and took shelter
in a covered sewer until army troops arrived and dis-
persed the mob by firing into the air. In another neigh-
bourhood, a protester was killed in clashes with police
and the Imbonerakure youth group.
One person was killed in Kinama Commune when
protesters confronted a group of Imbonerakure mem-
bers, caught one and burning him; and in Commune
Nyakabiga, another man was killed by a mob which
accused him of being a member of Imbonerakure,
witnesses told journalists.
Three people were killed and 13 wounded in the
day s violence, according to the Burundi Red Cross.
Protesters want Nkurunziza to drop his re-election
bid, saying it is illegal. But the Constitutional Court
ruled that he can seek a third term and his backers
say he can seek re-election because for his first term,
he was selected by Parliament and not by popular
election. Burundi s constitution says the president
should be elected by universal direct suffrage for a
mandate of five years, renewable one time.
Protests have rocked Burundi s capital since the
ruling party announced on April 25 that it had nom-
inated Nkurunziza as its presidential candidate. Thurs-
day s deaths bring the number of people killed in the
protests to at least 13 and 216 wounded. More than
30,000 Burundians have fled to neighbouring countries,
fearing political violence.
Nkurunziza said the protests should stop immediately
so the country can peacefully prepare for the June 26
elections. Opposition politician Audifax Ndabitoreye
was arrested after a meeting between East African
Community foreign ministers seeking to end the crisis
and Burundi leaders at a hotel in the capital on Wednes-
day but was released later. (AP)
