From March to early November, international media interest in Burundi (blue) spiked at the time of an attempted coup in May.

Deaths from politically-motivated violence (red) have increased since then, however, while media interest faded. 

To make this graphic we combined data from the GDELT database of media output with the numbers of casualties tracked by the ACLED conflict monitoring service.
