Burundi: rebels kill 5 in attack on capital

The National Liberation Front launched a rocket attack on the capital killing five people ... and according to the report, the attack destroyed part of the Chinese Embassy and struck the home of the US military attache.

A few weeks ago, the other Hutu rebel group, Forces for the Defense of Democracy (FDD), signed a peace deal with the government.

National Liberation Front is smaller than the FDD and government forces have been engaging them in recent weeks.
