A protester jumps over a barricade during a protest against President Pierre Nkurunziza and his bid for a third term in BujumburaBy Clement Manirabarusha and Goran Tomasevic BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - East African leaders will meet on Sunday at a special summit to discuss the crisis in Burundi, where police and protesters continue to clash on the streets of the capital and the opposition has boycotted peace talks. A Reuters witness saw police fire in the direction of protesters and gunfire was heard in several parts of Bujumbura early on Tuesday, where many roads are blocked and businesses closed after a month of sometimes lethal protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term in office. Elements in the military attempted a coup on May 13 while Nkurunziza was out of the country at the last East African Community (EAC) summit aimed at ending the conflict.

Rezaian's wife, Yeganeh Salehi, who is also a journalist, appeared in court alongside her husband and a female press photographer, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported. The trial is being held in Branch 15 of the Tehran revolutionary court, which usually presides over political cases or those related to national security.
