Are farmers' suicides in India hyped to divert funds, attract attention?

Burundi ruling party nominates president for 3rd term, risking unrest| Reuters

BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - Burundi's ruling party chose President Pierre Nkurunziza to run for a third five-year term on Saturday, a move critics say is unconstitutional and may trigger unrest in the East African country. Opposition groups promised protests if Nkurunziza runs, saying it would undermine a peace deal that has kept the country calm for a decade since an ethnically-fuelled civil war ended in 2005. Two months before the presidential election, Nkurunziza, 51, was nominated at a meeting of nearly 1,000 members of his party, which grew out of a Hutu rebel movement #Politics #Business #Technology #Middle East #Africa #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
