A radio station sympathetic to the government was set on fire on Wednesday and a government supporter killed in clashes over disputed election results in Madagascar.
The street fighting between opposition and government supporters came after nearly two months of peaceful protests over the presidential election.
Opposition leader Marc Ravalomanana says he won a majority of the vote in the December 16 elections, but official results show him winning less than half the vote, forcing him into a runoff with President Didier Ratsiraka.
Ravalomanana refused to take part in a runoff.
After negotiations with the government broke down, Ravalomanana declared himself president last week.
In response, Ratsiraka imposed a state of emergency.
Wednesday’s violence began with a clash outside the High Court, which had certified the official results showing Ravalomanana had not won outright.
Activists from both sides hurled rocks at each other and a government truck was set on fire.
Tsiokavao radio, a private station aligned with the government, was also set alight.
Security forces, who have generally kept a low profile during the protests, did nothing to intervene.
By afternoon, the violence had subsided and soldiers had stepped up security around government buildings.
Ravalomanana, mayor of Antananarivo, is extremely popular in the capital, but his support in the remote rural areas, where most of the country’s 16 million (m) people live, is harder to quantify.
Governors of five of Madagascar’s six provinces, all members of the ruling party, have said they do not recognise him as president.
The military has declared its neutrality in the dispute.

Early results in Mozambique’s presidential election shows the ruling party, Frelimo is headed for a strong victory.
The Frelimo candidate Filipe Nyusi had 280,000 votes, while his main challenger Afonso Dh’lakama had 130,000 votes. The third runner David Simango obtained 37,000 votes so far. This comes as the opposition Renamo party has rejected the results and accused the ruling party of ballot stuffing. On Wednesday, both the electoral commission and foreign observers confirmed some incidents but said the overall process went fairly smoothly. The Frelimo party has run the country since independence in 1975.
