Close Aide To Burundi President & Top General, Adolphe Assassinated

A top Burundian general and close aide to President Pierre
Nkurunziza was killed Sunday in a rocket attack on his car in the capital
Bujumbura. The general killed, Adolphe Nshimirimana, was widely seen as the
crisis-hit central African nation’s de facto internal security chief and even
considered the regime’s number two.
Police and witnesses said General Nshimirimana’s car was hit
in an apparent rocket attack in the capital shortly before midday Sunday, and
he was later confirmed to have died.
The presidency’s communications chief Willy Nyamitwe
confirmed the general, a former army chief of staff and intelligence chief, had
been killed. “I have lost a brother, a companion in the struggle. The sad
reality is that General Adolphe Nshimirimana is no longer with this world,” he
said in a message posted on Twitter.
