Belgium flies troops to Burundi

Brussels - Belgium has sent 10 paratroopers to protect its embassy in Bujumbura amid growing tension in the Burundian capital. A spokesman stressed that Brussels did not envisage a military intervention, or full-scale evacuation of 900 Belgians living in Burundi. More than 500 Westerners have flown out of Bujumbura this week.
