Burundi's Nkurunziza registers to run for a third term

Registering to run for a third term in office: Burundi's president, Pierre Nkurunziza, officially announces his bid for another 5-year term. Also, amid the ongoing conflict, thousands of refugees from Yemen continue to pour into neighbouring Djibouti, a situation putting a strain on the country's hospitals. And in Madagascar, explorers claim to have found the treasure of the infamous Scottish pirate, Captain William Kidd.
