Protests expected in Burundi on April 25-26, 2015

Today Burundi's government announced a nationwide ban on demonstrations. However, the US Department of State issued an alert that political demonstrations are expected on April 25-26, 2015, in Bujumbura and other cities in Burundi. These protests will probably occur around key government buildings. Due to the potential for clashes between protesters and police, avoid the areas of any public gatherings or protests.
