The European Union and United States called for a delay to elections in Burundi Monday after deadly protests triggered by the president's bid for a third term.

"We encourage the government of Burundi to take measures to calm the situation, and the idea of a delay in the electoral timetable would be for us a good thing," EU Special Envoy Koen Vervaeke told reporters. US ambassador Dawn Liberi read a similar statement.
