Burundi is at a tipping point three months after the disputed re-election of President Pierre Nkurunziza and the United Nations could intervene to stop the repeat of “past horrors,” the UN’s rights chief said.

A rise in extra-judicial killings, including political assassinations, has left 240 people dead since April, with bodies being dumped on the streets almost nightly, Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, high commissioner for human rights, said Monday at a Security Council meeting in New York, according to the UN’s website.
