A top Burundian general and right-hand man to President Pierre Nkurunziza was killed in a rocket attack on his car on Sunday, prompting fears of further instability in the crisis-hit country.
Adolphe Nshimirimana was widely seen as the central African nation's de facto internal security chief and even considered the regime's number-two.
Police and witnesses said General Nshimirimana's pick-up was hit by two rockets and sprayed with automatic gunfire in the capital Bujumbura on Sunday morning.

The influx of Burundians seeking refuge in Tanzania since the unrest in their own country began is enormous – we’re looking at a figure above 80,000, more than half, children. And of those children, over 952 are unaccompanied by any known adult – their parents or a guardian – and 1,732 have been separated from their parents or other family members. We classify them as ‘unaccompanied’ or ‘separated’ to distinguish between circumstances; 4 per cent of them are under five.
