Nicaragua: Protests Kill 15, Injure 199 over 24 Hours
Local Editor

A total of 15 people were killed and 199 others were injured during the ongoing protests in Nicaragua over the past 24 hours, Health Minister Sonia Castro said on Thursday.

Nicaragua Protest

"[Doctors] provided 199 people across the country with medical assistance, 15 more people were killed," Castro said at a press conference, as quoted by the Nueva Radio Ya broadcaster.

Protests in the country erupted on April 18 after the country's government proposed a reform increasing social insurance payments for employers.

Although Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega cancelled the reform, the protests are still underway.

The Organization of American States condemned an outbreak of violence in Nicaragua.

A month earlier, local media reported that at least five people dead in two days after another wave of violent protests swept the Central American nation.
