Thousands protest in Burundi against Rwandan ‘aggression’

Residents participate in a demonstration against the Rwandan government in Burundi’s capital Bujumbura. In a sign of further strained relations, thousands of demonstrators drawn mainly from the ruling CNDD-FDD party and its ally UPRONA took part in a peaceful march against Rwanda. Demonstrators marched in Bujumbura and other parts of the country, waving placards reading messages like “We denounce Rwanda’s open aggression against Burundi” and “We denounce the support of Rwanda to commandos who want to destabilise Burundi.”
