Nicaragua protests: Baby killed in Managua clashes:
At least four individuals, including a kid, have been murdered in the Nicaraguan capital after security forces opened fire on protesters, activists say.
So-called”combined forces” launched an assault on a student protest at a university in Managua, the Nicaraguan Centre for Human Rights said.
The baby was killed by a police bullet while being taken to a babysitter, his mother said. The government denied it.
More than 200 people have allegedly died in two months of demonstrations.
The protests were triggered by government cuts to pensions and social security declared in April.
Talks between President Daniel Ortega’s government and the opposition to resolve the crisis collapsed earlier this week.
