Front pour la liberation nationale (FROLINA)
The Front pour la liberation nationale (FROLINA) is a Hutu rebel group in Burundi, closely linked to PALIPEHUTU. Its armed wing is the ‘Forces armees du peuple’ (FAP).
Affiliation to the rebel groups goes beyond ethnicity and tends to be founded on family and geography. PALIPHUTU and FROLINA are long-established rebel groups opposed to "Tutsi domination". Dating from the 1970s, they derive their support from the plain area along Lake Tanganyika and the central Muramvya region.
