In Managua, the Nicaraguan capital, supporters of the president have attacked a hotel where opposition legislators had gathered ahead of a controversial congressional vote.

Crowds of supporters of Daniel Ortega shot home-made mortars at the building and  blocked access to congress to prevent the legislators from voting on a bill that would weaken presidential powers.
