Nicaragua protests: UN calls for access to investigate deaths

Dozens of students died during anti-government protests, and now the UN wants to investigate their deaths.


    The UN has asked Nicaragua to allow it to gather evidence on the deaths of dozens of students during anti-government protests.

    Church leaders are also urging President Daniel Ortega to allow human rights experts to investigate.

    The country is experiencing the worst social unrest since the end of Nicaragua's civil war in 1990.
