Two people have been killed and several others wounded in a grenade attack in Burundi’s capital, Gitega, police say.
Reports from the city say the attack occurred in a bar, near a busy bus stand, on Sunday evening as people gathered for a drink.
Gitega police chief told the BBC that several suspects had been apprehended and investigations were continuing to identify who exactly was behind the attack.
The attack occurred a day after shelling was reported in the vicinity of the international airport in the commercial capital, Bujumbura.
The RED-Tabara rebel group, which is thought to be operating from across the border in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, said it carried out the attack.
In June, two people were killed in grenade attacks in Bujumbura in an apparent attempt to disrupt a UN-convened conference on the Great Lakes region that was due to take place in the city.
