According to Zeledon, the attacks were conducted by heavily- armed men who shot against the buses where the Sandinista followers traveled to return home.

“We have a deep indignation and we feel powerless before this coward and criminal attack, a total massacre. It was a merciless ambush against poor people who celebrated our Revolution with joy and hope and in a peaceful environment,” said Zeledon.
