In Burundi, Killings Including Reportedly a UN Staffer, NY Silence

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, November 7 -- As killings in Burundi have increased, a November 9 UN Security Council meeting was belated announced, from Paris, on Friday November 6. Inner City Press, with a more than 100-part series on Burundi, asked UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric who would brief the Security Council for the Secretariat, but got no answer. Video here.

 From other sources the Press has learned: Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Prince Zeid and the chair of the UN Peacebuilding Confirmation by video from Burundi. In rebuttal, Burundi will speak, but not Uganda as mediator: it's said President Yoweri Museveni has not finished reading the report about Burundi.

 On November 7 came reports of killings, including it was said a UN system staff member. Still from the UN, nothing. The Security Council issued a Press Statement on November 7... about Libya.

  On October 23 Inner City Press asked UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft about the status of the draft Presidential Statement in the UN Security Council. He said there are differing views, but the UK is concerned about the "threat of genocide." Video here.  On November 3, Inner City Press again put a Burundi questions to Rycroft, now President of the Security Council for November. Video here, story here.

The son of human rights defender Pierre Claver Mbonimpa has reportedly been murdered, after Pierre Nkurunziza tweeted that "No one living abroad should consider himself superior to those who stayed in Burundi, since most of them have left their families here."
