Four Explosions In Burundi’s Capital

Sat., March 18, 1995

Four grenades exploded Friday in Burundi’s capital while the central African nation buried an assassinated Cabinet minister.

There were no immediate reports of casualties, said a Western diplomat, who spoke by telephone from the capital, Bujumbura.

Hundreds of troops patrolled the deserted streets and others guarded the Roman Catholic Queen of the World Cathedral, where a Mass was said for former Mines and Energy Minister Ernest Kubushemeye.
