Burundi students of closed university camp out at US embassy
Hundreds of students in Burundi spent the night in front of the US embassy after their university was closed amid anti-government protests.
They told the BBC they went to the embassy as there was no security for them in the capital city Bujumbura.
Social media has been blocked, radio stations closed and protests banned.
People have been protesting since Sunday over President Pierre Nkurunziza’s decision to stand for re-election in June.
The government closed the university on Thursday citing “insecurity”.
