A nation-wide strike by opposition groups began today to demand a corruption free election in the parliamentary vote on May 12th. In the process, security forces clashed with youths throwing stones in the capital. Travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without warning during the lead up to the elections.
