On assignment: Bujumbura students

One of the 512 Burundian university students currently seeking shelter outside the US embassy in Bujumbura, sits on a foam mattress in a room of a vacant building close by.

The students moved to the area in early May because, they claim, the US authorities ensure their security, after their university was closed amid anti-government protests. The government closed the university at the end of April, citing “insecurity”.
