Burundi: Ex-army chief killed, 2nd military leader targeted

Presidential spokesman Willy Nyamitwe said Saturday that Col. Jean Bikomagu was shot in his car. 

Burundi has been rocked by violence since the April announcement that Nkurunziza would stand for another term. 

Nkurunziza won the elections following turmoil in which about 100 people died in months of street protests against the extension of the president's time in power.
