Burundi president confirms will seek third term

Bujumbura (Burundi) (AFP) - Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza insisted Wednesday he would run for a third term in an election in June, defying international pressure to change his mind in a crisis that has sparked deadly protests.

A day after the Constitutional Court ruled he could stand for another term, Nkurunziza said it would be "the last mandate" he would seek, adding that holding an election was "the only solution" to emerge from the crisis.
