Burundi protests continue as president seeks third term

There have been protests in Burundi against a decision by President Pierre Nkurunziza to stand for a third term in office.

The protests spread outside the capital Bujumbura - to the town of Gitega.

In response to the protests, the Burundian government has shut-down several privately-run radio stations, messaging services including Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter and Tango and ordered telecoms operators to block mobile access to certain sites.

Maud Jullien reports from the capital.
