Burundi unrest: Live ammunition used against protesters

At least two people were killed and one more is critical after police used live ammunition on protestors in Burundi.

The country's current president, Pierre Nkurunziza, recently announced that he planned to stand for a third term.

Opponents say it is unconstitutional and threatens a peace deal that ended the 12-year civil war in 2005.

The government has forbidden protests for or against the president's candidacy, and hundreds of policemen have been deployed.
