Burundi police finds weapons cache

Burundi Police have recovered a large number of weapons following an attack on the home of an adviser to President Pierre Nkurunziza.

Automatic weapons and rocket propelled grenades were among arms found when they intercepted the attackers’ truck, police in the capital Bujumbura told the BBC Great Lakes Service.

The police have made two arrests.
At least 240 people have died since April, after the president decided to run for a controversial third term.

Zenon Ndaruvukanye escaped unhurt from the attack in Kajaga, western Bujumbura, in which his police officer bodyguard was shot dead.
