Burundi drummers melt away

Of the 14 drummers from Burundi brought to the Netherlands to pep up a charity campaign, 12 have slipped away to start a new life as illegal immigrants. During the final concert in Nijmegen, five drummers had disappeared after the interval, the Volkskrant reports on Tuesday. The following day another seven had gone.
