In recent weeks, ACLED has been releasing updated data about recent unrests in Burundi. Drawing mainly on information displayed on 2015Burundi, we have updated the ACLED dataset. Data covering conflict events through 11 July are now available here. New data covering events that occurred during the past week are included, as well as updates to data from prior weeks as more information becomes available. (For more information on reporting lags and the timeliness of real-time data, see the recent blog post on this subject.)
While the number of conflict events in Burundi decreased during the past week, the lethality of these events continues to increase. The number of conflict-related fatalities reported during the past week has been the highest reported in recent weeks, and is approaching levels seen in early May during the early aftermath of unrest.
