On February 5th, newly elected African Union (AU) Assembly Chairman and President of Chad Idriss Deby appointed a high-level delegation of five African heads of state to negotiate with factions in Burundi over the possible deployment of a peacekeeping mission to the country. The delegation includes Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, South African President Jacob Zuma, Senegalese President Mack Sall, Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba, and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

On February 6th, three grenade explosions rocked a bar in Bujumbura, Burundi, killing four people and injuring 12 others. The bombing followed a separate attack on Friday executed by the Republic Forces of Burundi (FOREBU) armed group, which killed at least five people, including security personnel. FOREBU has been a leading force in opposing President Pierre Nkurunziza’s controversial reelection for a third term in office.
