 “Cinco personas han sido heridas de bala en incidentes separados cercanos a las protestas en circunstancias poco claras. Una de las víctimas se dice que fue herida por un opositor desde un rascacielos, aunque la afiliación política del victimario aún no se ha confirmado”, añadió la periodista. “Nueve manifestantes opositores parecen haber muerto como resultado de sus propias acciones (al menos nueve se electrocutaron cuando saqueaban una panadería)”.
