  1. Rivals Fight for Control in Burundi

    It’s unclear who’s in charge. An army general tried to grab control of the central African nation yesterday, forcefully opposing President Nkurunziza’s court-sanctioned bid for a third term in office. Former intelligence chief Godefroid Niyombare claims his men have seized control of government buildings and an airport, but the military insists the president — whose location is unknown — remains in control. The chaos, in a country still recovering from a brutal civil war between its minority Tutsis and majority Hutus, is fueling fears of more bloodshed.
