Bujumbura: At least 21 bodies have been found lying in the streets of Burundi's capital as unrest continues, witnesses and a police source said on Saturday.

According to BBC, some witnesses said that dozens of bodies, mainly of young men, their hands tied behind their backs with signs of having been shot were found.

The bodies were found a day after attacks on three military sites.

The unrest stems from President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision in April to seek a third term in office.
