A relative of Buyoya, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the the former Burundi President had died on Thursday en route to Paris for medical treatment. She did not give any further details.

Before his death, Buyoya served as president for 13 years in total during two stints, from 1987-1993 and from 1996-2003.

This online news platform recalls that the former President was convicted in absentia in October, by the Supreme Court for the killing of Melchior Ndadaye, the country’s first democratically elected president, whose death in 1993 after just three months in office triggered a 10-year civil war which claimed at least 300,000 lives.
