AFP , Saturday 2 May 2015

Burundi's government on Saturday vowed a major crackdown on political protests, accusing opposition and civil society groups of providing cover for a "terrorist enterprise".

Burundi's security minister, General Gabriel Nizigama, said an overnight grenade attack that killed three people, including two police, was "linked to those who say they are demonstrating" against the controversial bid by the central African nation's president to serve a third term in office.
