The Caspian Hare


At least six protesters marching against Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega were shot and wounded Saturday, as thousands to the streets across the country.

As a march began in Managua, armed men fired on a protesters' barricade at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN). One student was injured, another of his colleagues told AFP.

In Leon, a mother watched as her 24-year-old son was riddled with eight bullets at a barricade set up by protesters.

Paramedics were tending to the wounded. It was unclear who opened fire on them in Managua as they approached a property belonging to the Cohen Corporation that had been occupied by squatters.

More than 220 people have been killed in two and a half months of anti-Ortega protests and repression by government forces.
