Burundi refugees return home from Rwanda after five-year exile

Almost 500 Burundian refugees living in Rwanda returned to their home country on Thursday. They are the first group to return after five years in exile. They fled in 2015, when the decision by the late President Pierre Nkurunziza to seek a third term, which his critics called unconstitutional, caused political turmoil and the death of hundreds of people.
