Burundi (official name: the Republic of Burundi) is a landlocked country of Africa. Formerly it was a colony of Belgium and it was then known as Urundi-Ubrundi-Bruwanda, Urundi being the shortened form of "Urundi Rwanda", that is, the other Rwanda. It shares its borders with Rwanda, Tanzania, Congo and Lake Tanganyika. It is a small country covering an area of only 27,830 km² and has a population of 7,548,000 (2005). However, despite its small size and small population, Burundi is facing a lot of ethnic and economic problems - it has yet to reconcile the claims of its Tutsi minority group with the Hutu majority group.
