At least 20 people have been killed after unknown gunmen opened fire at a crowded bar near the Burundi capital, Bujumbura, officials say.

The number of dead could rise as some people were critically wounded in the raid in the Gatumba area, they say.

Burundi's 16-year civil war officially ended in 2009 but sporadic attacks have continued.

The government has blamed recent attacks on bandits but some fear a new rebel group has emerged.
