The Archbishop of Canterbury has met the president of the troubled east African nation of Burundi, where hundreds of people have died and 250,000 have been displaced since disputed elections last year.

Justin Welby's talks with President Pierre Nkurunziza focused on the need for reconciliation, in order to avoid a fresh civil war.
