BUJUMBURA, Burundi – About 200 women demonstrated in Burundi's capital, Bujumbura, as street protests resumed against President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term in power.
At least 13 people have died and 216 have been wounded in protests since April 25, when the ruling party nominated Nkurunziza to be its presidential candidate.
Chadia Nshime, one of the demonstrators on Sunday, said she protested because she wants Burundi's constitution to be respected.
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.
The U.S. and African Union have said Nkurunziza should not seek a third term.
