Gunmen killed two people in a Burundi village outside the capital, a local official said Monday, a day before U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visits in a bid to end bloodshed over President Pierre Nkurunziza's disputed re-election.More than 400 people have been killed since April when Nkurunziza said he would run for a third term, a move opponents dismissed as unconstitutional and sought to prevent by staging street protests.No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but the government says there are now three rebel outfits fomenting violence, including two groups made up of renegade soldiers.
