The radio indicated that all the victims including a man, his wife and one of their children, died on the spot in the explosion that occurred in their house in the province’s Mugamba district at around 4:20 p.m. local time.

According to the radio, an unidentified man came to the house and blasted the grenade before running away.

The radio reported that one of the children who was grazing cows near the attacked house saw the suspect and warned the police.

Some southern parts of Burundi, namely Mugamba and the capital Bujumbura, faced insecurity since April 2015 when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his controversial decision to run for a third term, which he eventually won in a presidential election boycotted by main opposition candidates in July 2015.

More than 500 people in Burundi have been killed and some 270,000 people fled to neighboring countries, mostly Tanzania, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since the outbreak of the crisis. Enditem
