Daniel Sweeting: "In the Maitiedevi area, inside the curfew area, those who did not have the courage to go outside were protesting from their rooftops.
"Almost every person was making as much noise as possible using whatever they could - whistles, banging sticks, dustbin lids, plastic bottles.
"Some protesters were flying symbolic flag too.
"There was then a peaceful street demonstration, although it wasn't that big, just a couple of hundred people.
"It shows the curfew is having little effect, there were no police or army to be seen.
"At one street demonstration of about 2,000 people, the protesters were asking those not participating to throw water on them from above to show their support".
"These demos are not on many roads but instead go through the labyrinth of paths in a residential area.
"The persons participating are of all ages from the very old to the young, 9 and 10 years of age".
