Burundi's government has vowed a major crackdown on political protests, accusing opposition and civil society groups of providing cover for a "terrorist enterprise".
Burundi's Security Minister Gabriel Nizigama said on Saturday an overnight grenade attack that killed three people, including two police officers, was "linked to those who say they are demonstrating" against the controversial bid by the central African nation's president to serve a third term in office.
"We heard these criminals used grenades and guns, and for us they are linked to those who say they are demonstrating because they consider the police, who are bringing peace and security, to be their enemy," Nizigama said.
"The security forces will from now on take every necessary measure to stop and arrest these criminals. The police, with the army, will do everything to stop this uprising," he added.
"From today we will no longer see demonstrations. We see criminals, terrorists and even enemies of the country."
At least 10 people have died and scores more have been hurt since the protests began a week ago. Nearly 600 people have also

Yeah I have feeling this eventually would happen
Celebrations have broken out in Burundi's capital Bujumbura over reports of a coup against the government of President Pierre Nkurunziza.
The developments came after an army officer reportedly announced on Wednesday that Nkurunziza and his government had been dismissed.
Major-General Godefroid Niyombare, who was fired by Nkurunziza as intelligence chief in February, made the announcement at a military barracks, reports said.
He was surrounded by several other senior officers from the army and police, Reuters news agency reported.
"Regarding President Nkurunziza's arrogance and defiance of the international community which advised him to respect the constitution and Arusha peace agreement, the committee for the establishment of the national concord decide: President Nkurunziza is dismissed, his government is dismissed too," Niyombare was quoted as saying.
