The escalation of violence in Burundi is considered alarming. UN warns about the risk of a genocide.

Today, the current situation in Burundi has been the focus of a warning by the United Nations Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng.

The latter, indeed, “warned […] that violence” in the Country can “degenerate into a genocide and asked for the involvement of the International Criminal Court should the situation not improve” (EFE).

On the occasion of the “special session” dedicated by the “UN Human Rights Council to the “crisis in Burundi”, Mr Dieng said to be “extremely worried about the manipulation of the ethnic identity by the leaders of both sides” (ibidem).
