Exposure of fresh evidences of mass graves in Burundi
Since April 2015, Burundi experiences a troublesome situation as President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his will to run for a third term in office, despite the Constitution forbids it.
Following street protests led by the opposition, fighting and violence keep increasing weeks after weeks leading to genuine fear of a potential genocide perpetrated by security forces.
In this context, two journalists (British photojournalist Phil Moore and French Jean Philippe Remy) were arrested during a sweep for rebels in flashpoint districts of the capital, despite the validity of their accreditation. They might have informations proving the existence of mass graves.
According to several other observers and thanks to satellite images, video footages and testimonies it seems that at least five mass graves are displayed on the outskirts of Bujumbura in the aftermath of the bloodiest day of Burundi’s escalating crisis on the 11th of December.
The Burundi’s government denied the existence of such mass graves that may contain the bodies of dozens of victims of the security forces.
