Burundi has blocked social media platforms on election day as voters choose a leader to replace long-serving president Pierre Nkurunziza.
The BBC has confirmed that Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter are not accessible.
Only those using Virtual Private Networks (VPN), which mask a user’s identity, can access the social media sites.
The authorities have not responded to requests for comment.
Polling stations for the election opened early on Wednesday morning.
