photos - election protests - part 10

The riot police walked away from the CEP to head back to their truck.

I was able to take this shot inside of the CEP grounds.

It was good to see that the CIMO restrained themselves when the people knocked down the metal gates on Delmas. They did a good job.

The UN stood back as well. I took a closer look and these UN soldiers are all women! This is the special all-female unit from Bangladesh! I can't help but think though how they are going to keep crowds back with a cane stick. Notice 2 of the soldiers are holding sticks.

Journalists chatted and relaxed waiting for the crowds to disperse as well. Everyone thought the protest went well and went off without incident until .......
