A top Burundian general on Wednesday announced the overthrow of President Pierre Nkurunziza, following weeks of violent protests against the president's bid to stand for a third term.

The radio broadcast by General Godefroid Niyombare -- who was sacked from his position as the central African nation's powerful chief of intelligence in February -- came hours after President Nkurunziza arrived in neighbouring Tanzania for talks to end the crisis.
