Burundi's President Pierre Nkurunziza has won a controversial third term, taking nearly 70% of the vote, according to provisional results from the country's electoral commission.

Opposition leader Agathon Rwasa won 19% of the vote after his name was left on the ballot paper, despite a boycott.

At least 70 people have been killed since Nkurunziza announced in April he would run for a third term.

The government accuses the opposition of provoking violent protests.

Opponents say his bid was illegal, due to a limit of two terms in the constitution.
