Nicaragua remembers: Anniversary of mass protests

Easter processions see people remember those who died during protests against President Daniel Ortega.

Easter week in Nicaragua falls on the first anniversary of mass protests when rallies for social security reform turned into a movement against the government of President Daniel Ortega.

More than 300 people died and tens of thousands fled the country.

A year later, the country is reflecting on the ultimate cost of the crisis.
