At least four people were killed in fresh attacks ahead of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's arrival in Bujumbura Monday, his first visit to Burundi since a crisis began in April last year. Ban, who landed in the afternoon, is due to hold talks with President Pierre Nkurunziza on Tuesday after meeting with leaders of political parties and civil society in a bid to bring fresh impetus to stalled efforts to resolve the 10-month-old crisis. After the talks Ban will head to the Democratic Republic of Congo on the second leg of an Africa tour that will also take him to South Sudan, where civil war erupted in December 2013.
