Is Burundi on the brink of civil war?

The US special envoy for Africa’s Great Lakes region says Burundi is at risk of descending into total chaos.
Thomas Perriello is calling for urgent regional mediation to establish a peace process between the government and opposition groups to prevent further bloodshed.
The crisis began earlier this year when President Pierre Nkurunziza ran for a controversial third term in office and won. That led to months of protests and violence, including an attempted coup.
The United Nations says at least 240 people have been killed since April.
So is Burundi on the brink of civil war? Or can violence be contained?
