Nicaragua violence: Families call for release of detainees

Ongoing political unrest has killed at least 186 people and injured more than a thousand, while activists say they have recorded at least 60 disappearances - but the actual number is difficult to verify.

    Deaths mount in Nicaragua as the political crisis in the country continues.

    More than one thousand people have been injured and dozens of others disappeared since the start of the conflict.

    The families of the missing are calling on authorities to release detainees.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from the Nicaraguan capital, Managua.
