Police keep an eye on the crowds who gathered for the funeral procession of Emmanuel Ndere Yimana, an opposition supporter assassinated Wednesday July 21 2015, in Bujumbura, Burundi, Thursday July 22, 2015. Yimana is believed to be another victim of electoral violence targeting those opposed to president Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for a third term in office that opponents says is unconstitutional. Results for Tuesday's election will be announced Friday with Nkurunziza likely to win a third term after some opposition groups boycotted the polls and the main opposition figure Agathon Rwasa saying security forces frustrated his campaign.(AP Photo/Jerome Delay)
