Burundi coup leaders claim in control of most of capital

Coup leaders in Burundi claimed Thursday to be in control of most of the capital Bujumbura, a day after a top army general said he had deposed President Pierre Nkurunziza.

“We control virtually the entire city. The soldiers who are being deployed are on our side,” coup spokesman Venon Ndabaneze told AFP during a lull in fighting mid-morning.
