VIDEOS : Police round up young men in Burundi for fear of attacking the government

This is now the norm in Burundi. Anyone the police consider old enough to fight the government of Pierre Ukurunziza is rounded up and taken away. Many are feared dead after being taken away, with several families left to wonder about what might happen to their sons.


In the first video released a day to the massive shooting that led to the killing of 87 people in Bujumbura, police loaded a big truck with young men who commited no crime, just to prevent them from taking up arms against the government. There are debates on whether these young men are still alive.

The second video was secretely recorded in November showing about 100 young men being led away by the police to an unknown destination.
