Burundi president dies

Burundi’s president Pierre Nkurunziza has died of a heart attack, the government says.

A government statement posted on Twitter says the outgoing president died at Karusi hospital after suffering a heart attack on June 8.

Nkurunziza was due to be replaced in August by political ally, Evariste Ndayishimiye, who was declared earlier this month the winner of a May 20 presidential election. Sputnik
