"Ceasefire" rebels shell Bujumbura

Despite ceasefire, Burundi rebels, army clash

BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - Burundi's last remaining rebel group injured five people in its second fight with the army since signing a truce meant to help end more than a decade of civil war, the army said on Wednesday.

The Hutu Forces for National Liberation (FNL) attacked two suburbs of the lakeside capital Bujumbura, hurting three soldiers and two civilians and damaging houses, army spokesman Adolphe Manirakiza said.

"FNL rebels shelled yesterday in the middle of the night in Mutanga suburb, but they first attacked army positions," Manirakiza told Reuters...

The attack is the second since FNL leader Agathon Rwasa and Burundi President Domitien Ndayizeye signed a cessation of hostilities agreement in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on May 15.
