Human Rights in Burundi

On February 28, to coincide with a visit to Burundi by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Human Rights Watch released a briefing paper, "Burundi: Civilians Pay the Price of Faltering Peace Process," documenting a recent massacre of civilians by the Burundian military. After HRW released the briefing paper, Burundian authorities informed the United States that it would facilitate delivery of humanitarian aid to eastern Burundi.
