Burundi Coup Bid: Groups Seek Bujumbura Control.

Rival groups of soldiers in Burundi are vying for control of the capital Bujumbura amid confusion over the success of an attempted
Heavy fighting and shelling is reported at the state TV building.
A senior military source says soldiers loyal to President Pierre Nkurunziza are back in control of key parts of the city, including the airport. Coup leaders insist they remain in charge.
The unrest began when Mr Nkurunziza announced he was seeking a third term.
Opponents say the bid contravenes the constitution.

Witnesses in Bujumbura say they heard heavy fighting overnight between troops loyal to the president and those who backed the coup, but it is unclear who is in control.
"We didn't sleep at night because of fear.... a lot of explosions and gunshots can be heard everywhere... and people are scared," one witness told the BBC.
One senior military source told BBC Afrique that loyalist troops had seized back full control of the presidential palace, the national radio and television station, the airport and the centre of Bujumbura.
BBC correspondents there say the streets seem to be mainly in the control of loyalist police, and the airport has reportedly re-opened which would appear to confirm reports it too is in loyalist hands.
But heavy fighting continues around the state radio and television broadcaster RNTB, with troops loyal to the coup spotted trying to gain entry into the building.
Control over the national broadcaster is key because it is the only outlet still broadcasting outside the capital, the BBC's Maud Jullien reports.
Both the army's chief of staff and President Nkurunziza have claimed that the coup attempt has been halted.
But this has been contradicted by the coup leaders, one of whom said they were in control of "virtually the entire city" of Bujumbura.
"The soldiers who are being deployed are on our side," coup spokesman Venon Ndabaneze also told the AFP news agency.
