Burundians celebrate coup declaration

People in Burundi have taken to the streets to celebrate the apparent ousting of President Nkurunziza after the military declared a coup against him.

In a radio address, an army general said President Nkurunziza has been "removed from office".

There had been protests against his plans to stand for a third presidential term, which many viewed as unconstitutional.
