Inside the parliament building, chaos reigned. Gangs of young people, many
of them intoxicated, were roaming the building, smashing furniture and
computers and looting the rooms. Documents were strewn on the floor, along
with pictures of regime officials in broken frames.

But police offered little resistance and the clashes ebbed. Afterward,
crowds of demonstrators, some drunk and brandishing handguns, roamed the
streets.

A few ambulances were seen trying to take injured policemen to the
hospital. Crowds of drunken youths could be seen stopping them and
demanding the ambulance crews hand over the injured officers.
