As Burundians already know – the UN and international community have been cooking up a pot of lies to bring about regime change. The mainstream media (msm) is a lie machine, it is the Media of Lies and Propaganda.

KPFA Weekend News Anchor Sharon Sobotta: The argument over atrocities committed in Bujumbura, the capital of the East African nation of Burundi continues. Who is responsible and why is it happening? Western policymakers, press, and some Burundian opposition figures accuse the government of President Pierre Nkurunziza, and call for an intervention by African Union troops that Burundi has said it will respond to as invaders. The government denies that it attacks civilians and accuses the opposition not only of terrorist attacks but also of attacking civilians so as to blame the attacks on the government and heighten pressure for military intervention. KPFA’s Ann Garrison has more.
Also on Friday, the France 3 channel’s Evening 3 news program removed the video from its website and broadcast this apology:
France Soir 3: “Let’s go back to our Wednesday evening broadcast on Burundi during which we showed excerpts of a video depicting abuses which were said to have been shot at the beginning of the week in Burundi. Authentication of the images is in question and it appears that the video is older and that it was shot in a West African nation and not in Burundi. We of course hope that you will be willing to accept our apologies.”
KPFA/Sharon Sobotta: And that was the French newscast “The Evening 3” on the public channel France 3, apologizing for airing a video of atrocities falsely attributed to Burundian security forces. KPFA’s Ann Garrison had that report for us.
