ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) New video shows Burundi police firing on protesters during the ongoing protests against the president's decision to seek a third-term. The video was filmed on Monday, a day before the country's constitutional court cleared the way for President Pierre Nkurunziza to launch his bid, which he declared in April. The opposition says Nkurunziza's plan to stand in a June election violates the constitution and a peace deal that ended a 1993-2005 war between the Hutu majority and the Tutsi minority. More than a week of protests have plunged the African nation into its worst crisis since that conflict. Civil society groups say a dozen people have been killed, while more than 30,000 have fled to neighbouring states fearing more ethnic violence.
