Is there a threat of genocide in Burundi?

November 18, 2016

Human rights investigators accuse Africa country's government of crimes against humanity.

The International Federation For Human Rights says people in Burundi are under attack – and history is in danger of being repeated with another genocide in the region.

After a two-year investigation, the rights group has issued a report accusing government leaders of attacking anyone who opposes them.

The government rejects the report and accuses the opposition of manipulating the human-rights investigation to force regime change.

Burundi has been in turmoil since President Pierre Nkurunziza announced plans in April 2015 to run for a third term in office.

Is there a risk of Burundi spiralling into a new civil war?
