Protesters gathered in Paris on Saturday to protest over violence in Burundi, a day after at least 30
Burundian refugees were killed in clashes with Congolese security forces over plans to send some of them home.

Local activists accused the police and soldiers of opening fire as the refugees protested over the plan in the town of Kamanyola in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Friday.

The president of a group representing Burundians who have fled the country, Gratien Rukindikiza, said he feared the situation could slide into a “genocide”.

More than 400,000 refugees have fled Burundi including 40,000 to neighbouring Congo, since violence erupted in April 2015 when President Pierre Nkurunziza said he would seek a third term in office, a move his opponents said was unconstitutional.
