Nicaragua's Ortega called a ''murderer' in talks with protesters

The president said, during negotiations to end the street violence, that the Nicaraguans killed in the crackdown were criminals.

    The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, has been described as a "murderer" by protesters demanding an end to his 11 years in power.

    He met opposition leaders for talks aimed at ending weeks of unrest, in which at least 60 demonstrators have been killed.
