toll in eSwatini's nationwide protests has risen as violent demonstrations
continue to rock the country.
Against the backdrop of an internet blackout, the exact death toll in the eSwatini protests has become a disputed point between activists and the government.
The internet has been blocked since Tuesday, but satellite, SMS and phone communication was still possible at times. Unverified images of injured protesters have circulated on social media and mobile platforms, but the country remains largely cut off.
