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.
