BUJUMBURA, Burundi — Burundi's political violence continued Saturday as 21 people were found shot dead in a neighborhood of the capital, a day after the government said an unidentified group carried out coordinated attacks on three military installations.

An eyewitness told The Associated Press he counted 21 bodies with bullet wounds in their heads in Bujumbura's Nyakabiga neighborhood after Friday's violence. Some of the dead had their hands tied behind their backs, said the witness, who insisted on anonymity due to safety concerns.
