Police say they are investigating the discovery of a man's body in a tractor-trailer cab parked less than a block from the main protest scene. On the third night of a citywide curfew, there were mostly media on the streets. One man was placed in handcuffs after walking up and yelling at them.

Some areas of the capital show signs of business as usual.
