Burundi: Leaders are changing, but human rights abuses continue unabated
There is grave concern at the continuing human rights abuses taking place in Burundi, following the change of government in July 1996. This document gives details on several reports of massacres and "disappearances" of unarmed ethnic Hutus carried out by government forces and Tutsi students with the acquiescence of the authorities. Amnesty International is appealing to the authorities to stop the killings and bring those responsible to justice. Amnesty International is also calling on the international community to take action, in particular to publicize the report of the UN Commission of Inquiry into the assassination of President Melchio Ndadaye and the massacres which followed.
