The shooting starts in Antananarivo

The Associated Press is now confirming reports from local / regional media that the National Army has opened fire on anti-government protestors.

Both sides appear to be responsible for the confrontation(s), and things will likely become more difficult in the coming weeks.

Foreign interests like mining, oil prospecting, material resources and ecological activities are *mostly* outside the capital region, but political instability is always cause for caution.

Consider this a travel advisory: Visit lemurs in the zoo, for now.
