Nicaragua doctors risk their lives to treat wounded protesters

More than 100 people have been killed since protests against President Daniel Ortega began seven weeks ago.

    Rights groups in Nicaragua say more have people died in violence between police and anti-government protesters.

    Volunteer doctors are working in secrecy to set up makeshift emergency rooms where they can receive and treat protesters wounded by government forces.

    They are risking their lives and jobs to do so.
