The Security Council has heard conflicting views on the situation in Burundi, including fears by the radical opposition that a genocide is in the making.

Council members met on Friday to review their recent mission to the country which has been in chaos since last April, following the President's decision to run for a contested third term.

The crisis has led to hundreds of deaths and reports of human rights violations. It has also forced more than 200,000 people to flee to neighbouring countries.

Veronica Reeves has the story.
