calm in Djibouti?

Djibouti has been peaceful this week. No more protests that I know of. The police are still out in force and there are rumors swirling that there will be another protest tomorrow (Feb 25th) but that the government has not issued a permit for this protest. As I understand, protests and demonstrations are permitted as long as they are registered in advance and normally the gov't has allowed them to go ahead. We'll see what happens tomorrow though. Today I saw a burned out semi truck or lorry if you're British and commented to a friend that today this street is calm but who knows what tomorrow will bring?
