Deadline October 31st - Yet another "last chance" for Agathon Rwasa's FNL?

"The international community and regional countries all agree that that will be the last chance for the FNL." - Pierre Nkurunziza

Burundi's new president, former FDD rebel leader Pierre Nkurunziza, has given Rwasa an ultimatum to start peace talks by Halloween or face "serious action". This comes several months after the UN warned the FNL "we will not tolerate war crimes any more" - several months in which the FNL killed hundreds more civilians. It's now more than a year since the Burundian government issued arrest warrants for the FNL leadership, following the FNL's admission of guilt for the vicious massacre at Gatumba, and declared the group a "terrorist organisation" - a year in which Rwasa held his first press conference and was feted as a statesman in Dar Es Salaam by both the Tanzanian and Burundian presidents.
