Pierre-Claver Mbonimpa, a well-known human rights defender in restive Burundi, was seriously injured in a shooting in the capital on Monday, civil society activists told AFP, the day after a top general was assassinated.

"He has been very badly wounded, he is in hospital," said Balthazar Fengure of the Association for the Protection of Human Rights and Detainees, adding that Mbonimpa had publicly opposed President Pierre Nkurunziza's controversial bid for a third term in office.
