Rival groups of soldiers in Burundi are vying for control of the capital Bujumbura amid confusion over the success of an attempted coup.
 
Fighting has been reported around the state TV and the Bujumbura airport.

President Pierre N-ku-run-zi-za, who is reported to be in Tanzania, has appealed for calm saying the coup has been foiled.

But the coup leaders insist they remain in charge.

The unrest began when N-ku-run-zi-za announced he was seeking a third term.

Opponents say the bid contravenes the constitution. N-ku-run-zi-za came to power in 2005.
