– The level of violence has reduced considerably over the last 24-48 hours but the situation remains fluid and renewed violence between rival political factions is possible.

– Internet and mobile telephone networks are now functional although some problems remain with landlines and text messages which are subject to periodic disruption.

– Many bank branches have resumed activity from 10.00 to 13.30 local time and many shops and businesses have reopened for the first time since the protests gained intensity.
