Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza threatened on Wednesday, Dec. 30 to fight any African Union peacekeepers imposed on his country, in his most confrontational comments yet on a mounting political crisis. The African Union said this month it was ready to send 5,000 peacekeepers to protect civilians caught up in months of violence, invoking for the first time powers to intervene in a member state against its will.
