Policeman walks after throwing a teargas canister during a protest against Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza and his bid for a third term in BujumburaThe United States urged east African states to send high-level representatives to Burundi to reiterate their opposition to President Pierre Nkurunziza seeking a third term and to press for free and fair elections.
