Burundi Seeks to Replace UN Envoy

Burundi's president has asked the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a new envoy

Burundi's president has asked the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a new envoy less than two weeks after the emissary returned from crisis talks in Bujumbura, according to a letter seen by AFP on Monday.

President Pierre Nkurunziza said in the letter sent last week that Ban and incoming Secretary-General Antonio Guterres should begin consultations on choosing a successor to British diplomat Jamal Benomar.

Last week, Benomar returned empty-handed from talks on the government's decision to suspend ties with UN rights monitors and its refusal to allow the deployment of a UN police force.
