Madagascar: Looting scenes on video as uncertainty prevails

A youtube video of a looting scene at a major shopping center in Antanarivo was posted by c17dabossbaby. Many bloggers are wondering why the police forces are seemingly absent during this time of unrest (video) and speculate that the president may be temporarily located in Mahajanga (not overseas as initially reported) as the capital city is still deemed unsafe (fr). Anonymous sources confirm that this would be the current security procedure.
