>From a Burundi friend: 

“Bloggers are off line because of their physical security. On police
checkpoints they check phones, laptop,...
Police monitor what people are writing now. 
Many well-known bloggers fled the country or are hidden for their security.
4 private media have been burnt and other forced to close!
I myself didn't reach Burundi. I am in Kigali. 
Not imprisonment until now.
social media such as Face book, whatsapp, viber are blocked. People use
VPN”

We have noticed that Burundi bloggers are off-line. No
doubt related to the President's crack down after the
failed coup.

Does anyone have any news as to whether this silence is
due to:
-Internet blackout?
-Physical threat/imprisonment?
-Fear?
