Attacks on journalists increase during Nicaragua protests

Assaults, harassment and death threats have come to characterize the working conditions for many independent journalists in Nicaragua.

    Being a journalist in Nicaragua has become more dangerous in recent months.

    Since anti-government protests began in April, reporters have found themselves under attack for doing their job. They have been "harassed, shot at" and had "angry mobs sent by the government" after them.

    International journalist organizations say that has led to an alarming decline in press freedom in the country.
