    Nicaragua's Association of Human Rights says at least 448 people have been killed in anti-government protests over the past three months.

    It's accusing security forces of detaining opponents of President Daniel Ortega in clandestine torture centres.

    Meanwhile, a small group of students came out to mark the 100 days anniversary of the civil uprising.
