Hello Gert,
What a misery to be allowed to take pictures.
You would think that it's a money trap but you don't tell anything about the prices of the permits. So the cause of the difficult behavior lies elsewhere.
But the only picture you have of this scene looks very good.
It seems like a well-studied composition although you probably didn't have the time for that.
I like it very much because of the difference between light and shadow and the dark figures at the back, actually almost silhouettes.
Best regards, Paul

Thank you Paul,
The permit didn't cost a cent. It was just an expression of a paranoid military regime. The soldier who stopped me was actually courteous and didn't harass me, and ordinary civilians were always friendly. But when I took "illegal" photos, before I had the permit, while going with UN staff to inspect projects outside the city, they were very nervous that some officials would see me.
