When President Pierre Nkurunziza of Burundi announced in April he was running for a third term, street protests broke out, leaving 20 people dead and more than 370 injured, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross. The protests resulted in a failed coup last month that lasted 48 hours.
Parliamentary elections that were set for Friday and presidential elections that were set for June 26 have now been postponed.
