FILE - In this Feb. 6, 2008 file photo, retired Minnesota National Guard Sgt. John Kriesel rests at his home in Cottage Grove, Minn. Kriesel lost both of his legs in a roadside bomb attack while patrolling near Fallujah, Iraq in December 2006.  Veterans of the Iraq War watched in frustration as Republican presidential contenders have distanced themselves from the original decision their party enthusiastically supported to invade that country. Some veterans say they long ago concluded their sacrifice was in vain, and are annoyed that a party that fervently lobbied for the war is now running from it. Other say they still believe their mission was vital, regardless of what the politicians say. And some find the gotcha question being posed to the politicians _ knowing what we know now, would you have invaded? _ an insult in itself.  (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)

Refugees who fled Burundi's violence and political tension wait in a speedboat to board a ship freighted by the UN, at Kagunga on Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania, Saturday, May 23, 2015 to be taken to the port city of Kigoma. An outbreak of cholera has infected 3,000 people in a Tanzanian border region where refugees fleeing political unrest in Burundi have massed, the U.N. Refugee Agency said Friday, May 22, 2015. Some 300 to 400 new cases of cholera are being reported daily. At least 31 people — 29 refugees and two Tanzanians — already have died of the disease, according to UNHCR. More than 64,000 Burundians have fled to Tanzania in recent weeks, UNHCR said, escaping the unrest sparked by their president's bid for a third term that many say is unconstitutional.
