About 2,000 people marched through a neighborhood of the capital as police looked on, a day after Burundi's government ordered a ban on any further street protests over President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term in power.

Small group of young men on Monday were checking pedestrians and vehicles going through. Police and army soldiers negotiated with protesters to let trucks stuck at an entrance proceed.

Nkurunziza's government has ordered all state officials report back to work and all schools to reopen on Monday.

Burundi's Constitution states a president can be popularly elected to two five-year terms. Nkurunziza maintains he can run for a third term because parliament elected him for his first term, leaving him open to be popularly elected to two terms. Protests started two weeks ago.
