Grenade attacks in Burundi

By on June 22, 2015

Grenade attacks in Burundi’s capital Bujumbura and towns to the north killed four people on Sunday night, the police said on Monday, stoking tensions before a parliamentary election next week and a presidential vote on July 15.

Four people have been killed and 30 wounded in a wave of grenade attacks overnight in Burundi, police say, a week before parliamentary elections.

Police blamed the attacks on opposition supporters and said three suspects had been arrested.
Violent protests began in April against the president’s third-term bid.
A grenade attack in the Musaga district of Bujumbura also wounded one police officer, police spokesman Pierre Nkurikiye said.

On Friday night 11 police officers were wounded in simultaneous grenade attacks in the capital Bujumbura.
