African leaders agreed to impose sanctions on Burundi after a Tutsi military coup, but took no action on a report calling for military intervention. Burundi's military ousted Hutu President Sylvestre Ntibantunganya last week and installed Pierre Buyoya as ruler.

The decision on sanctions was taken by the presidents of Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, the prime ministers of Ethiopia and Zaire and the foreign minister of Cameroon, the chairman of the Organisation of African Unity. Reuter - Arusha
