Nicaragua’s Violent Impasse
The human rights group, Amnesty International has heavily criticized the government of Nicaragua for its “shoot to kill” directive, aimed at anti-government protestors. The organization believes that it was ordered by high officials in government.
Hundreds of people have been killed since tensions arose in the country back in April, with another 2,000 being wounded by police and pro-government military.
President Daniel Ortega and his wife, who is the Vice president, Rosario Murillo, are accused in the investigative report, Called “instilling Terror”, of ordering the harsh, violent response to anti-government sentiments within the country.
