More than a quarter of a million Burundians have left the country since last year - when president Pierre Nkurunziza decided to campaign for a third term in office, which he then won. The move triggered violent protests, a failed coup and fear of a return to civil war. Correspondent Philip Kleinfeld reports from south-east Rwanda, close to the Burundi border, where some of the thousands of these Burundians have fled.
