Burundi grenade blast kills eight and injures 50: Kayanza police

BUJUMBURA Burundi (Xinhua) -- Burundian police on Monday said unidentified people Sunday evening blasted a grenade in Kayanza Province, northern Burundi, killing eight people and injuring over 50 others.

"The grenade attack by an unidentified terrorist happened yesterday (Sunday) around 18:30 against a crowd of people in a bar.

"Four persons died on the spot and some 54 others were injured, many of them seriously.

"The four injured died this morning," Burundian Police Spokesman Pierre Nkurikiye said.

According to him, the injured people were evacuated to three hospitals close to where the explosion happened.

The grenade blast targeted Claude Nzambimana, the director of Kayanza’s coffee washing stations of a state-owned company, he said, adding that Nzambimana was unharmed but his car was damaged.

The investigation is going on to identify the attacker.

This is one of the biggest attacks in recent months in the east African nation.

There were a series of attacks in Burundi in recent months, causing casualities.

Perpetrators of those grenade attacks have not yet been identified or arrested.
