Burundi govt and rebels sign ceasefire deal

Burundi’s government and the last active rebel group on Monday signed an unconditional ceasefire agreement, raising hopes of a definitive end to the small Central African nation’s 15-year civil war. The deal between the government and the National Liberation Forces (FNL) was reached after a six-week round of fresh fighting.
