Authorities in Burundi on Monday shut down the central African nation's main independent radio station following an upsurge in protests over a bid by the president to stay in office for a third term, the station said.

"The radio is off the air after a decision by the authorities," said Gilbert Niyonkuru, head of programming at the influential African Public Radio (RPA), which has for months been reporting on government intimidation of opponents.
