Burundi: Thousands attend funeral of murdered opposition leader

  • The funeral of Zedi Feruzi, an opposition leader in Burundi, has been attended by thousands of people in capital Bujumbura.

    Feruzi and his bodyguard were killed in a drive-by shooting, prompting many opposition leaders to go into hiding as they fear for their safety.

    The murdered politician’s coffin was carried through the capital to a cemetery.

    The opposition says that those campaigning against President Nkurunziza’s decision to seek re-election are no longer safe in the country.
