''The mess has been growing since Saturday. Several hundred protesters armed with sticks and stones have been fighting running battles with the police on Constitution Avenue, a high-security zone which is the seat of power and houses all the important state buildings. Thousands of policemen deployed to keep the violence in check have been telling reporters of their frustration at not being allowed to use more force against the demonstrators.''
