Thousands of Burundians take refuge in Rwanda

By Philip Kleinfeld

The move triggered violent protests, a failed coup and fear of a return to civil war. Correspondent Philip Kleinfeld reports from south-east Rwanda, close to the Burundi border, where some of the thousands of these Burundians have fled.
