Nicaragua: General strike anger over political prisoners

This is the fifth national strike to take place since a political crisis gripped the country more than one year ago.

    Thousands of people in Nicaragua have gone on strike as opposition supporters demand the release of political prisoners.

    Human Rights activists say about 800 people have been arrested since anti-government protests began last year.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from Mexico City.
