ACLED has released updated data about recent unrests in Burundi. Drawing mainly on information displayed on 2015Burundi, we have updated the ACLED dataset. Data from 26 April to 26 June 2015 were published last month. New data covering conflict events through 5 July are now available here.

The latest events in Burundi have confirmed previous trends. Though no protests were reported last week (week of 25 June), levels of violence remain high. Unidentified armed groups have continued to operate mainly in Bujumbura. Using mostly grenades, these groups aim to disrupt elections, to which recurring attacks against poll stations have testified. Meanwhile, incidences of violence against civilians remain high.

For prior posts on Burundi local data coverage, see the first and second updates on the topic.
