President Pierre Nkurunziza rides a bicycle as he heads to the venue where he voted in at a polling station in his rural home in NgoziBy Fumbuka Ng'wanakilala DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) - A Burundian general who backed a failed coup in May threatened that he and others would launch an armed resistance after President Pierre Nkurunziza refused to bow to opposition and international demands to abandon a bid for a third term. General Leonard Ngendakumana, a deputy to the leader of the aborted uprising, accused the president of dragging the central African country back into civil war, comments that will alarm a region with a long history of ethnic conflict. "The next (step) is to organise ourselves just to resist, to make Pierre Nkurunziza understand that he must leave and then that we are prepared to do it by force, by organising a military force," Ngendakumana said, adding coup leader General Godefroid Niyombare was still in Burundi.
