Rebels Agree to Burundi Cease-Fire


The 9 year civil war in Burundi might be closer to an end as the largest rebel group, and mostly Hutus, agreed to a cease-fire when interim President Pierre Buyoya, signed a power-sharing deal with Pierre Nkurunziza.

Pierre Nkurunziza is leader of the Forces for the Defence of Democracy (FDD), and in recent years the FDD has become a major power source in Burundi.

"We will honor the agreement and we hope the transitional government will do the same. We would like to see peace in Burundi," said Mr Nkurunziza.
