Nicaragua series pt 4: NGOs denounce repression

By Alix Hardy

In Nicaragua human rights organisations have grown increasingly concerned about the government’s crackdown on protesters. More than 320 people have been killed in more than six months of unrest.

Daniel Ortega’s government has also been seeking to arrest anyone who played a role in the uprising against him.

Over 500 opponents are currently in jail and many political dissidents have had to go into hiding to avoid being arrested and tried.
