The National Liberation Front (French: Front de Libération Nationale - FROLINA ) is an ethnically Hutu rebel group that sometimes functions as a political party in Burundi. The FLN has been considered a minor group in the Burundian Civil War compared to the National Council for the Defense of Democracy-Forces for the Defense of Democracy, and to Palipehutu-FNL which only recently signed a cease fire.
