BUJUMBURA (Reuter) - Troops and gunmen fought in a suburb of Burundi's capital for a second day yesterday and military sources said five gunmen were killed in Nyabiraba, 11 miles away. Witnesses said shooting in the northern suburb of Kamenge continued into the afternoon. Troop reinforcements moved in as armoured vehicles ringed the suburb, a hotbed of Hutu militants opposed to the army, which is dominated by Burundi's Tutsi minority.
