BBC Africa Eye investigates “Burundi’s Killing House” | WATCH

When Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza announced that he was running for a third term, some of the people who protested against his candidacy were shot in the street.

Now, former regime insiders have told the BBC that the repression has gone underground. They admitted to killing perceived opponents themselves, and said that several sites across the country served as secret detention and torture locations.

A BBC Africa Eye investigation concentrated on one house in particular, which appeared in a video posted on social media with red liquid flowing from its gutter.
