International Rights groups condemn Nicaragua killings

This week has seen some of the worst violence since the protests erupted nearly 3 months ago.

The United Nations and international rights groups are condemning the intensifying violence in Nicaragua.

Around 260 people have been killed in more than two months of protests to demand President Daniel Ortega resign.

The Catholic Church, which has been mediating between the government and the opposition, has also come under attack.
