Anti-genocide campaigner reportedly released

Following intense pressure from human rights organisations both inside Burundi and internationally, the anti-genocide campaigner Ponpon Mudugu has been released from custody, his family has reported. Mudugu was arrested with his wife Aline Ngendankazi and another campaigner, Thacien Sibomana on 21 May after holding a commemoration event for the victims of genocide in Burundi. The Burundian government alleged that their activities had been a threat to "state security". Aline Ngendankazi was later released, and Ponpon Mudugu has now joined her. The fate of Thacien Sibomana is still unclear.
