ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Police fired tear gas and water cannon at protesters in Burundi's capital on Monday (April 27), the second day of demonstrations against the president's decision to run for a third term, a move critics say violates the constitution. "The fight continues," crowds chanted as about 200 people gathered in Bujumbura burning tyres in the streets. Activists said at least five people were killed on Sunday (April 27), a day after President Pierre Nkurunziza said he would run in the June 26 election, triggering unrest in the east African nation that emerged from an ethnically fuelled civil war in 2005.
