Burundi coup plotters sentenced to life imprisonment

Four of the leaders of last year’s failed coup in Burundi have been sentenced to life imprisonment, the AFP news agency reports.
Nine others were jailed for 30 years for their roles in the attempt last May to overthrow President Pierre Nkurunziza.
There has been political tension and violence in Burundi since the president announced last April that he would run for a third term – and he went on to win July’s election.
