By Clement Manirabarusha BUJUMBURA (Reuters) - Police fired on protesters who took to the streets of Burundi's capital on Tuesday in renewed protests against President Pierre Nkurunziza's decision to run for a third term in office, witnesses said. Protesters said they were angry that a weekend summit of African leaders had not urged Nkurunziza to halt his bid but only urged a delay in elections.
