Detailed map of Bujumbura [BDI21528.E]

Please find attached a copy of the only map of Bujumbura found among the sources consulted by the DIRB. Although the map provides a degree of detail, naming some areas, streets and landmarks, it was published in 1987 and does not cover the entire extent of the city. For additional information on Bujumbura, text from the map's source publication and excerpts from the Encyclopaedia Britannica and Le Grande Encyclopedie du Monde providing brief comments on Bujumbura.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
