The video on CNBC was interesting, to say the least.
Police were ordered to charge down the street en masse, to
scare protesters back. The protesters were ignoring the
curfew. The charge worked. Police halted, shot teargas.
bottles were thrown

this was the most 'dramatic' of events. Other events
had the police riding armored vehicles as they drove towards
the demonstrators, firing teargas as many rode on top and
peered out windows.
