Background: Burundi's first democratically elected president was assassinated in October 1993 after only 100 days in office , triggering widespread ethnic violence between Hutu and Tutsi factions. More than 200 ,000 Burundians perished during the conflict that spanned almost a dozen years. Hundreds of thousands of Burundians were internally displaced or became refugees in neighboring countries. An internationally brokered power-sharing agreement between the Tutsi-dominated government and the Hutu rebels in 2003 paved the way for a transition process that led to an integrated defense force , established a new constitution in 2005 , and elected a majority Hutu government in 2005. The new government , led by President Pierre NKURUNZIZA , signed a South African brokered ceasefire with the country's last rebel group in September of 2006 but still faces many challenges.
