it was unclear whether the man had been kidnapped or arrested, according to a local resident. He added that the thoroughfare had been barricaded with concrete blocks, of the sort usually used in the central reservation of dual carriageways.
Two vehicles attempting to navigate a way through the blockade today were apparently attacked by the protestors. A refrigerated van was reportedly set ablaze and a taxi driver was physically assaulted and had his vehicle smashed.
The road remained closed today, with no sign of security officials trying to intervene and reopen the road. [/restrict]
