Burundi's presidential election has been marred by violence and ethnic tensions.

The vote was supposed to assert the war-torn country's democratic credentials and cement a fledgling peace deal with rebels.

Instead, its 3.5 million voters were left without a choice of candidates after the opposition pulled out over fraud claims.

All six opposition candidates pulled out of the vote, handing Pierre Nkurunziza, the current president, a guaranteed victory.
