Melchior Ndadaye

Ndadaye was the president of Burundi for four months. He got into power as the first democratically elected president on July 10, 1993, and was assassinated on October 21, 1993.  What happened exactly on the day of his death is not well-known, even though it has been said that he was abducted together with the president and vice-president of the national assembly and killed.  He was apparently bayoneted to death.
