    The Aftermath of the Prosecutor General's Office

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'There were occasional sounds of what sounded like gun fire, but it was unclear what was actually gun fire and what was sound grenades or other devices meant to simply panic the crowd,' said Amerikanka
    - jsarverCNN, CNN iReport intern

    As the flames engulfed the Prosecutor General's office, the fire spread into the street.  The scene remained generally calm, save for a few momentary panics in reaction to gun fire or sound grenades, which would cause the crowd to either flee or - in the case of those surrounding the square - hide behind the heavy cement pillars in tightly-clinging crowds.  Within moments, fear would subside and those who had fled or huddled would laugh it off with an uneasy chuckle.
