By Patrick Nduwimana BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - Police in the Burundian capital used water cannon and tear gas on Sunday to disperse protesters demonstrating against President Pierre Nkurunziza seeking a third term, witnesses said, after the government banned protests for or against the move. Witnesses at the protests said at least one police officer and a protester were injured. Burundi's ruling CNDD-FDD party nominated Nkurunziza as its presidential candidate on Saturday, prompting hundreds of civil society groups to decry the move as a "coup" against the constitution, which limits leaders to two terms in office. "We deplore the way police acted with violence against a peaceful demonstration," said Janvier Bigirimana, a civil society activist.
