Burundi: rebels threaten fresh attacks on capital

The threat comes from the The National Liberation Forces (FNL) rebel group, which has never joined the peace talks with the govenrment. They said they will attack the capital unless the police release dozens of their fellow ethnic Hutus arrested in the past few days.
"This is serious, we are not joking...If nothing is done within 20 days, we will take action," he [Pasteur Habimana, FNL spokesperson] added.
