Thousands of refugees from Burundi are to be resettled in the United States, the U.N. refugee agency said this week. Some 200,000 Burundians displaced over the years by the Burundian civil war, the Congolese civil war, the Rwandan genocide, and other regional conflicts are currently living in camps in Tanzania. The 13,000 bound for the U.S. are from a group originally displaced back in 1972. Many of them were born in the camps since then, and have no personal ties to Burundi. “They would face particular reintegration problems if they went home,” said the U.N.’s Stephen Corliss.
