The nation's mainly Tutsi army, which grabbed power in a coup last year, has killed at least 1,000 people since the beginning of December, said the United Nations human rights office in Geneva. The office said its evidence showed a new escalation in violence in Burundi's three-year guerrilla war between the army and rebels of the Hutu majority. Hutu rebels are also accused of massacres of civilians and are responsible for killing 58 people in the same period, the U.N. office said.
