Burundi Vows To Probe Deadly 'terrorist' Grenade Blasts
Burundi on Tuesday vowed a thorough investigation into a series of deadly "terrorist" grenade blasts that hit the economic capital Bujumbura
Nairobi, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Sep, 2021 ) :Burundi on Tuesday vowed a thorough investigation into a series of deadly "terrorist" grenade blasts that hit the economic capital Bujumbura.
The ministry said it condemned the "barbarity" of the blasts and pledged a "thorough investigation to put these nameless terrorist cowards out of action".
"These are coordinated attacks launched by enemies of peace who have wanted to show for three days that there is no peace in Burundi when President Ndayishimiye is at the UN General Assembly," a senior Burundian official said on condition of anonymity.
"But they are mistaken. The situation is under control despite their little outbursts." RED-Tabara, which has a rear base in South Kivu in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo, emerged 10 years ago and is now the most active of Burundi's rebel groups.
It is accused of being behind many deadly attacks or ambushes across the East African country since 2015.
The Burundian government and many diplomats believed at the time that the rebel group, made up of an estimated 500-800 men, was led by one of the fiercest opponents of the state, Alexis Sinduhije, who has always denied the claims.
