1 dead, 7 injured in Burundi grenade blast


Police in Burundi say one person was killed and seven others were injured after a grenade attack last night on a bar in the capital, Bujumbura.

The bar – in Kamange district – is owned by a senior figure of the ruling CNDD-FDD party.

The BBC’s Prime Ndikumagenge in the city says four people including one police man were also killed on Saturday in southern part of the city.

There has been a wave of unexplained killing, both of opposition activists and security forces since April when President Pierre Nkurunziza decided to run for a third term in office, which he won comfortably in July.

Burundi’s Iwacu website reports the victim of the grenade blast died in hospital while another will at all costs have his legs amputated.

The grenade hit a total of eight people, according to the head of the district Ciza Bernard.

According to SOS Media Burundi, two women, a young boy and a small child on the eighth avenue were arrested on Monday morning after the explosion of two grenades hidden in waste managers.
