Seventeen alleged coup plotters appear before a state prosecutor in Burundi, their lawyer says, the day after a failed attempt to overthrow the country's president.
Seventeen alleged coup plotters have appeared before a state prosecutor in Burundi, their lawyer says, the day after a failed attempt to overthrow the country's president.
The group included General Cyrille Ndayirukiye and top police commissioners Zenon Ndabaneze and Hermenegilde Nimenya, who are accused of "attempting to overthrow the state", lawyer Anatole Miburo said.

Coup leader Godefroid Niyombare, a general and ex-intelligence chief, was said to be still at large.
Mr Miburo alleged that the group were beaten after their arrest on Friday, two days after General Niyombare launched a bid to overthrow president Pierre Nkurunziza.

"They were seriously beaten, in particular General Ndayirukiye," he said.
Mr Miburo said the general had been forced to record a confession for broadcast on state media.
Relatives of some of the accused, speaking on condition of anonymity due to fears of reprisals, said the suspects had raw wounds on their bodies and one of them had lost hearing in one of his ears due to a beating in the cells.
