Fabrice Nzohabonayo was out with a colleague in Musaga neighborhood last week, filming the now daily protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza's third-term bid, when a police officer asked him to stop.
“So I put down my camera, but then he grabbed me and said, ‘you are the one making people protest!’" says Mr. Nzohabonayo. Throwing him to the ground, the police officer started beating him with his baton. Soon another police officer joined him.
