HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 c156W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has on the number of recent violent deaths in Burundi; and what current initiatives are being taken by the international community to promote peace. [19690]

Mr. Baldry

We do not have an accurate assessment of the number of deaths in Burundi but are concerned at the level of violence. Action in support of the moderate and broad-based Government is being taken by the United Nations, the European Union and the Organisation of African Unity. We have given our full backing to these efforts.
