Grenade attack in Burundi kills one, injures 30


Police in Burundi says one person has been killed and 30 others injured in overnight grenade attacks in the capital.
Police spokesperson Pierre Nkurikiye said the attacks on Thursday night targeted two bars in the Buyenzi quarter of Bujumbura.
Nkurikiye said it was not immediately clear who was responsible for the apparently co-ordinated attacks.
Burundi has been plagued by sporadic violence since April 2015, when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced he would seek a disputed third term. Hundreds of people have been killed in violence since then.
