Heavily armed state security forces are on view all over Swaziland today (18 March 2011) as pro-democracy protestors attempt to march to the Prime Minister's office in the capital, Mbabane.

Messages received via the Swaziland Democracy Campaign (SDC) say that security forces are blocking off streets in the commercial city Manzini ‘armed to the teeth with various armaments and these include their armoured vehicles, Caspers, water canons.’

Security forces are also ‘visible and heavily armed’ in ‘every corner of the country’.
