Burundi leader defends opposition suspension

President Pierre Nkurunziza tells Al Jazeera that Movement for Solidarity and Development have "disturbed security".

    The main opposition party in Burundi, the Movement for Solidarity and Development (MSD), has been suspended for four months.

    Government officials blame the MSD for violent clashes in the capital, Bujumbura.

    The opposition accuses President Pierre Nkurunziza of seeking to change the constitution to hold onto power and run for a third term in 2015.
