Future unclear for Nicaragua's political prisoners

More than 200 people remain in jail, a year after protests against President Daniel Ortega.

    This week marks the anniversary of the start of a political crisis in Nicaragua.

    President Daniel Ortega has led the crackdown on opposition protests with more than 300 people reported killed and tens of thousands displaced.

    The future of hundreds of people in jail is uncertain because negotiations between the government and the opposition have stalled.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports.
