Opposition Set for Exile

DAR ES SALAAM () -- The leader of Burundi's ousted Hutu majority party has set up camp in neighboring Tanzania and said Friday his party was considering plans for a government-in-exile to resist the Tutsi military junta.


Jean Minani, chairman of the mainly Hutu Frodebu party, said Burundi's deposed rulers were giving sanctions a chance to bring down ethnic Tutsi strongman Pierre Buyoya.


Buyoya took power July 25 when the army threw out Frodebu President Sylvestre Ntibantunganya, who has been in the U.S. Embassy in Bujumbura since taking refuge over three weeks ago.
