    Background: Ramallah curfew continued into its second day after the residents were given close to two hours in the afternoon to open shops and have house-wives stock up on food. (We were not permitted to stay for the curfew break lest that cameras recreate unrest). But also during curfew hours the security forces which patrolled the streets at all times saw to it that the essential services worked. Several doctors got passes and of course ambulances were free to move but even cooking gas for the house wives who ran out of gas was permitted to delivered, since the driver had a special permit. Foreign press who requested to see the situation, were permitted by the Military Govt. to tour the town during the curfew hours.
